Design Action Studio for Research, Architecture, and Urbanism is a critical and multimodal practice that operates across scales - from environments, to buildings, to objects. The studio is committed to engaging architecture’s urban, aesthetic, and political dimensions as it responds to emergent 21st century issues.
