Philip Parker Architect is a small practice working at multiple scales with an extensive range of strategies toward building, landscape and furniture design. With an emphasis on linking design strategies as project specific we work with a large and evolving array of design techniques involving art practice, ecology, and computation. The practice works in diverse urban and rural settings with an emphasis on architecture’s performative roles and its transformative capacity. We have produced innovations in material with the use of ultralight, formable and modulating fabrications in residential contexts, glass, wax and rubber in educational environments; variably prefabricated components in housing; and hybridized built / grown components in landscape works. These strategies and material engagement support our commitment to architecture’s ecological engagement.
