Matter Management (sometimes referred to as MTTR MGMT) is an award-winning practice that ranges widely in discipline, methodology and media – spanning works in architecture, such as the Aquatic Terrarium for the New Barcelona Zoo (2001) and the winning entry for the MAK Vertical Garden Competition (2006) to film, including the eco-critical feature essay The Blue of Noon (2010) and Flood Stains (2010), co-written with No Wave legend Lydia Lunch.
MM’s focus lies on the investigation, representation and innovation of prototypes for the fringe areas between technology and nature through the strategic combination of architecture, media arts, film and urbanism. Current projects at MM include a master plan for Shaoxing, a 7,000-year-old city Shaoxing in China, a media concept store in Hollywood, and the direction of the short film Raven.
MM has been published widely in contemporary global media. Especially noteworthy are a review for Vivarium in LOG 19, the featuring of the MAK t6 Vacant project on the cover of Liat Margolis and Alexander Robinson’s book on experimental landscape architecture, and the Aquaterrari for the New Barcelona Zoo in Fernandez Galiano’s Arquitectura Viva. MM has also exhibited extensively in museums and galleries, the most recent of which was the showing of the MAK Vertical Garden winning entry at the Louvre in Paris.
