Process

PLAN.01 is a collective for architectural research with a variable geometry. Each project becomes an opportunity to explore different design methods between the different firms that form this collective around strong and powerful concepts.

PLAN.01’s projects create a connection between a building and its future uses, between users and spectators, and between a landscape and its history by understanding the site and evoking memory. The firm produces unique buildings, true “events” that fuse a program’s social, environmental, and symbolic concerns through a highly contemporary architectural resolution. PLAN.01 addresses social questions and unusual issues that bring the dynamic inspiring the collective fully to life. Ad hoc “rules” of the game are defined in function of each project’s challenges.
