About

Member Since: 2019

Member Offices: Amsterdam

Throughout more than 30 years of international project experience, UNStudio has continually expanded its capabilities through prolonged collaboration with an extended network of international consultants, partners, and advisers across the globe. This network, combined with their centrally located offices in Amsterdam, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Frankfurt enables them to work efficiently anywhere in the world. With already over seventy projects in Asia, Europe, and North America, the studio continues to expand its global presence with recent commissions in among others China, South Korea, Taiwan, Italy, Germany and the USA.

The practice favours an integral approach to architecture; a non-hierarchical, complex, generative and integral design process that
takes on board all aspects of architecture. Time, use, circulation, construction and all other material and virtual systems and
underlying values are studied, visualised, related to each other and finally joined into an inclusive organisational structure. The shifting fields of engineering, urbanism and infrastructure form some of the most important parameters of architecture. These
fields exist concurrently in one project.
