MATT OSTROWSKI IS THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR AND FOUNDER OF FRONTIER ARCHITECTURE, A FIRM DEDICATED TO THE DESIGN OF CONTEMPORARY URBANISM, MAPPING, HOUSING AND ASSEMBLY ARCHITECTURES.

HIS RECENT WORK IS THE 'FUNDAMENTALS' PUBLICATION, WHICH INCLUDES INFORMATION MATRICES FOR DESIGN THROUGH SYNTAX, URBAN IMAGE, SHAPE, HUMAN APTITUDE, GENETICS, MUSIC TRANSLATION, AND NARRATIVE VISUALIZATION.

OSTROWSKI HAS 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN, WITH AN EDUCATION FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS IN AUSTIN.  HE HAS WORKED IN DESIGN OFFICES IN BRAZIL, TEXAS AND NEW MEXICO AND PERFORMED INDEPENDENT RESEARCH IN EASTERN ASIA.  HIS INTERESTS LIE IN THE FIELDS OF MATHEMATICS, PSYCHOLOGY, PHYSICS, ARTS AND HUMANITIES, TECHNOLOGY, AND CONSTRUCTION.

OSTROWSKI CURRENTLY HAS NEARLY 60 COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS IN DESIGN, 5 IN CONSTRUCTION, AND 16 BUILT.  THE PRIMARY PROGRAM IS INDEPENDENT HOUSING (CONTRIBUTIONS INCLUDE HOUSING AND INSTITUTIONAL BUILDINGS, PUBLIC SPACES, EDUCATION, GOVERNMENT, COMMERCIAL AND ASSEMBLY BUILDINGS).  THE PRIMARY CONTRIBUTIONS ARE MODELING, DRAWINGS AND TEXT (CONTRIBUTIONS INCLUDE PROJECT MANAGEMENT IN ALL PHASES OF DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION).  THE DESIGNS ARE PRIMARILY LINEAR AND CUBIC FORM, OF WHICH MORE SIGNIFICANT ARCHITECTURE EMERGES FROM INTEGRATION OF ADDITIONAL SPATIAL AND GEOMETRIC COMPLEXITY.
