UNStudio as a Practice

As an international architectural firm, UNStudio is active in the broadest fields of architecture, constantly looking for ways to expand the profession as a whole. We have projects in Europe, Asia, North and South America, and the Middle East and we strive to make a significant contribution to the discipline, to continue to develop our roles and responsibilities with respect to design, technology, knowledge and management, and to be a specialist in city projects.

UNStudio's UNSx Team

UNSx is UNStudio’s innovation think & do-tank and experience lab. Grounded in architectural, urban and product design, we research and experiment with new methodologies, technologies, processes and materials to design solutions for the  shared human experience. We design meaningful moments, rather than stand-alone solutions. With a team of architects, computational designers, product designers, creative strategists, VR/AR specialists and sustainability consultants, we cover a wide range of disciplines. Our most recent projects include building adaptive and responsive environments, using data to design for happiness, and developing products and services for connectivity. Taking a user-centric perspective, the experience of the community that will be living in a space, using a product or accessing a service, is at the core of our design practice.
