MY Studio is a multidisciplinary practice, operating in the space between architecture, art, and landscape. Engaged in projects of all scales, the firm believes in an embodied experience of architecture, seeing media as material and its effects as palpable elements of architectural speculation. Specializing in interactive environments and interested in the relationship between technology and the body, they are determined to translate conceptual ideas in the real world, testing projects ranging from concept clothing, artist books, installations and architecture through the dynamic interaction between the construct and the larger public.
MY Studio's work was featured in the 2006 National Design Triennial at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. Their work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. They were one of five finalists in the 2006 PS1/MOMA Young Architects Competition and were selected for the Architectural League of New York Emerging Voices in 2007.
