Our constructed environment is ubiquitous. The opportunities to defamilarize the familiar and to alter preconceived notions of where and how we live out our lives are endless. As an architects we are externally directed by ideas about site, program, function, and structure. As artists we are directed by a series of social constructs and internal benchmarks. There is a poetic character to our built environment and our everyday experience of it . Through our work we are constantly reevaluating the most basic assumptions about our relationship to what we build, why we build and how it affects our daily lives.
