The Studio is an experimental architectural platform focusing on extreme environments. Projects span through various scales and spheres of action, often challenging the status-quo through inventiveness and a cross-disciplinary approach. Collaborative work with the scientific community and technical institutions  is part of every project we undertake. We truly believe that what exists is only a small part of what is possible, and we design driven by this principle.The Studio is run by architect David A. Garcia.
