Founded in 2002 by Murat Sanal and Alexis Sanal: our practice is a process-based architecture and urban design studio. Our open source process explores how unique qualities of place, intertwined with technology, art and social life, generate distinctive and expressive environments. Intensifing space, celebrating the natural environment, and delighting the imagination are valued in each of the practice’s design endeavors. Professional efforts are focused on architecture and urban design as a contributor to civic society and nature. Our design research activities evolve from our curiosity, innovation in building technology, employment of new technologies/methods, experimental computation, articulation of performance criteria, narratives as creative drivers, commitment to nurture nature, and our passion to co-create more livable cities.
