Summaries

Summary Sentence: Exploring the cultural significance of architecture.

Full Summary: Plexus is dedicated to creating innovative projects that explore the cultural significance of architecture by revealing the critical role it plays in enhancing our lives, articulating experiences that are intellectually and aesthetically productive.

plexus r+d is a research and design studio founded in 1999 by Jordan Williams and Erik Lewitt. Plexus is dedicated to creating innovative projects that explore the cultural significance of architecture by revealing the critical role it plays in enhancing our lives, articulating experiences that are intellectually and aesthetically productive. This is achieved thorough an understanding of contemporary social and cultural forces together with a clear sense of specific project goals and each client’s mission. We creatively deploy this knowledge to establish powerful and engaging connections between our designs and the physical, social, cultural, political and economic contexts they occupy. We are particularly interested in an understanding of the world as a complex web of distinct movements and forces that frequently fail to engage and enhance each other. Our designs create resonance by utilizing this understanding to establish surprising connections between distinct ideas, yielding powerful, compelling and thought provoking experiences.
