Looking at the city as inclusive to infrastructural and landscape contexts and their everyday usages, SMAQ’s approach to design is based on a concept of continuity in urbanism, landscape, architecture and interior. The studio conceives the built environment as a product reacting to and acting within an extensive field of forces. The projects aim at intensifying existing environments and unfold social relevance in offering diversity and permeability. The deployment of integrative morphologies and tectonics provide our architecture with the capacity to productively negotiate contradictions of the contemporary city while vitally challenging spatial conventions.
