At the heart of their work is the idea that architecture must change over time to keep up with mutating social and behavioral patterns. Their practice involves extensive research in order to find loopholes in the existing system that can be utilized to make architecture that, simply, works better. For example, with their first ground-up built project <em>110 Rooms</em>, the studio developed a floor plan comprising uniform-sized rooms so that residents could use as them as they see fit rather than conforming to predetermined programs. After all, the typical father-mother-children family is not so typical anymore. MAIO is helping architecture catch up.</p> <p>In this feature from the <a href="https://archinect.com/news/article/150037133/get-your-copy-of-the-first-issue-of-ed-archinect-s-new-print-journal" target="_blank">first issue</a> of Archinect's new print publication&nbsp;<em><a href="https://ed.archinect.com/" target="_blank">Ed</a></em>, we talk with the studio about&nbsp;<em>110 Rooms&nbsp;</em>and their practice more broadly.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150031271/studio-visits-duggan-morris-architects Studio Visits: Duggan Morris Architects Ellen Hancock 2017-11-08T05:00:00-05:00 >2017-11-08T12:16:32-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ec/ec5prvr8djztozqq.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ec/ec5prvr8djztozqq.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ec/ec5prvr8djztozqq.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ec/ec5prvr8djztozqq.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>For this <a href="https://archinect.com/features/tag/909489/studio-visits" target="_blank">Studio Visit</a>, I traveled to&nbsp;<a href="https://archinect.com/firms/cover/59631615/duggan-morris-architects" target="_blank">Duggan Morris Architects</a> in a charming old warehouse building in the back streets of East London.
