Situ Research was founded in 2005 in Brooklyn, New York. It has developed a model of practice uniquely equipped to explore a wide range of spatial issues––from mapping and visualization to full scale architectural installations. SITU Research is also strongly committed to interdisciplinary collaborations. Work done with a wide range of practitioners in fields outside of design including lawyers, activists, geologists, paleontologists and artists has resulted in unanticipated but exciting applications of architectural tools and methodologies to projects that extend into territory far beyond the traditional boundaries of architectural practice. The Studio engages in this work not only to explore novel and nuanced spatial problems driven by an entirely different set of objectives, but more importantly to seek new territory for the designer’s role in politics, science, society, and the environment.
