Description

The New York architecture office MOS, founded by Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample, is one of the few in the United States that manages to build a quality work from their almost artisanal office structure. Their architecture’s intention is not to programmatically experiment with social norms, wanting to use architecture to directly intervene or facilitate interactions between neighbors or occupants. MOS’s projects are built through combining and aggregating a multiplicity of architectural elements: chimneys, corridors, courtyards, roofs, windows, etc. Their work is partially self-referential, drawing on a consistent set of elements, ideas, and characteristics from their own architectural catalogue. This 2G issue include their last works of the office together with two texts by the architect and critic Stan Allen and by Giovanna Borasi, director of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) in Montreal.
