about this item

In a world dominated by hyper-specialisation, there are few architects that inhabit multiple areas consistently through their career. Procter-Rihl is a multidisciplinary studio that navigates between architecture, furniture, product design, exhibition, and landscaping.Procter-Rihl believes that architecture should be culturally--and climate--responsive, engaging with its place but also challenging. Unlike a typical contextual approach, the work creates tension between the vernacular and a new aesthetic. These contradictions add a layer of complexity to the reading of the architecture. Spatially, the practice explores complex geometries, which create dynamic experiences. Diagonal juxtaposition or a simple shift, or stretching of, a traditional form can produce an illusion of greater space. In their furniture work the studio is known for light structure and transparent acrylic where cut edges define a form based on the drawn line.Architecture and Beyond: Procter-Rihl comprises four parts or actions: fold, perforate, float and weave. Each chapter illustrates the practice's design method and way of working, highlighting key elements in construction.
