A combination of architecture, academia and design

Superfusionlab is a progressive and enthusiastic practice combining academic achievement with research, design and construction. They put great effort into studying new materials and construction techniques to ensure that their vision is materialised with care. Function and beauty are the desired effect.

Their projects vary in size spanning from furniture to masterplans, always challenging their architectural concepts. They engage in architectural competitions in order to test new ideas and expand their design research. These ideas are then studied in terms of their buildability and materials and evolve into solid construction techniques. Their commissioned projects use this competitive approach to develop their continuous productivity in building.  

The practice is a collaborative laboratory. In each project they cooperate with consultants and experts in varying fields in order to refine the fitness of the design. In this process they have generated architecture that bridges the gap between what is possible using age-old techniques and those born of future industry and fabrication. Their projects will continue to push the boundaries of production while keeping a firm understanding of craft and beauty in construction.

Alongside the professional practice they have a continuous role in teaching and academia. This allows their theoretical side to develop and expose the firm to the next level in architectural thinking while keeping up with current ideas and trends. Superfusionlab takes the architectural design process through to completion. They feel that it is not good enough to propose and let others determine how to construct. This way the design knowledge and construction techniques are transferred to every project. Superfusionlab have exhibited their work extensively, including the ICA and the Royal Academy of Arts. Their work is presented worldwide, most recently in Sydney and Nebraska. They were recently awarded an Honourable Mention and Publicâ's vote for the Queen's Park Arena competition in Glasgow.
