"Matter is a design collaborative studio founded by brandon clifford and wes mcgee. The firm has a number of ongoing preoccupations surrounding design as it evolves through the digital era.
Today it is hard to imagine a world without the computer. We second this as our firm lives digitally. Our communication and process are inherently digital, while the result is physical.
matter | something that occupies space. While our world is becoming ever digitized, our ultimate passion is in making. We are invested in eliciting the potentials of means and methods of making (in the traditional sense) through a digital process. The contemporary architect has many digital tools to manifest their designs — laser cutters, 3d printers, waterjets, ect. We recognize that many of these technologies have provoked their own processes of making, often times irrespective of that materials history.
We invite research of various fields that could potentially inform our architectural research.
Matter is constructed through conversations. No project is completed in a vacuum. While each project is directed by brandon and wes, the collaborators make each project unique — in turn, matter's pedagogical objectives are continued simultaneously as the numerous collaborators elicit variety in the work. If you are interested in a collaboration please make sure to contact us."
