plexus r+d is an emerging research and design studio founded in 1999 by Jordan Williams and Erik Lewitt. plexus r+d is dedicated to creating thoughtful and innovative projects that celebrate the cultural significance of architecture. Our projects reveal the critical role architecture plays in enhancing people’s lives by articulating fascinating spatial experiences that are both intellectually and aesthetically inventive. These objectives are achieved through a comprehensive understanding of contemporary social and cultural forces together with a clear sense of our clients’ missions. We creatively deploy this knowledge to establish powerful and engaging connections between our designs and the physical, social, cultural, political and economic contexts they occupy. We are particularly interested in an understanding of the world as a complex web of myriad movements and forces, and how architecture and space can be leveraged to awaken people to the richness and diversity inherent in the world.
