matter design

"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."
