Formation Association practices architecture as an expansive cultural enterprise emerging from investigation and reflection to transform our expectations of the built environment.   

From a purview of broad-ranging interests, the practice excavates history, engages the contemporary moment, and collaborates with clients, communities, and interdisciplinary partners to promote a variegated design approach.  Endeavoring to discover multivalent outcomes for projects of every scale, Formation Association pursues the studied synthesis of the social and the material and their ongoing interplay across architecture, urbanism, and broader ecologies.

Formation Association’s projects have been published by Phaidon to Architect Magazine, and featured in online design journals such as Dezeen, Designboom, Fast Company, and Divisare. The firm’s collaborations with artists have been presented in museums and cultural institutions both locally and internationally, from the Hammer Museum and the Orange County Museum of Art, to the MIT LIst Visual Art Center and the Mona Bismarck American Center in Paris.
