Synecdoche (pronounced si-nek-duh-kee) is a design make studio exploring material constructions, their narratives, and the resulting environments they create. As a small practice we work in a fast and nimble environment as an effective production technique. Architecture creates opportunities to work in multiple scales within the same discipline. Our belief is that tangibles and experience are simultaneous design problems. We work to invent a design office model that works for personalities, lifestyle and play.
Why devote an entire issue to the MASS Design Group? Not only is the nonprofit firm bringing architecture to communities in need, it's piloting a profoundly more sustainable and ethical model of professional practice.
