About SITU
SITU is an unconventional architecture practice using design, research and fabrication for creative and social impact. Client-specific, adaptive and driven by a diversity of deep knowledge, SITU is untethered from any stylistic or formal agenda. The practice is composed of three divisions—Studio, Research and Fabrication—that work collaboratively while providing individual capabilities and services. SITU’s staff is composed of a wide range of specialists, all dedicated to exploring and crafting spaces at multiple scales, working across a dedicated creative studio and full-featured fabrication workshop. 

Clients and collaborators come from an equally varied collection of sectors including museums, art centers and academic institutions; civic, social and professional organizations; developers, high-end commercial companies and residences. A few notable projects include placemaking strategy and design for Tishman Speyer’s new project in Long Island City (The JACX); a flexible and dynamic workspace for Google’s Creative Lab in New York; and a system of reconfigurable spaces at various branches of the Brooklyn Public Library. SITU is also nearing completion on a number of projects that include the new headquarters for the Advanced Functional Fabrics of America, a campus pavilion for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and a 400,000 square foot office complex in Sunnyvale, California for a globally recognized tech company.
