We are attracted to the contemporary city and its complexity - its market mechanisms, politics, culture, laws and controversies. We acknowledge the all-embracing logic of urbanization forces and capital flows, yet we believe in the possibility of the architectural project.

The impact of the neoliberal reality unfolding during the last forty years has radically affected the practice of architecture. The design process has become more of a collaborative effort by interdependent expert and interest groups. The operationality of an idea is measured equally in terms of its imaginative clearness and its ability to be implemented. Architecture has become a product of frictionless management.

We belong to the generation informed by this reality, where being an architect is synonymous with being an expert with a specific knowledge domain. Yet, we find satisfaction in imagining and making architecture that is both logical and effective, but that also contains a degree of resistance, contradiction and the unexpected.
