FORM studios, inc
a quick intro

FORM studios Architecture is a design & build research architecture firm in Dallas/Fort Worth. In 2000 Form studios was founded as an exploration of architectural FORM. Form studios provides architectural, construction and building service for both commercial and residential commissions, master planning, 3-D visualization and animation services. The studio is comprised of members educated in the theories and principles of architectural design and construction. The combination of professional experiences and the creativity of each individual involved fuel the theoretical and practical nature of FORM studios. If the perception of familiar concepts can be shifted to induce a slightly unfamiliar perspective of architecture, then the process of blending artistic interpretation with deliberate manipulation of spatial experience will lead to the discovery of the essence of FORM that is so dear to the likes of photographers, artists, craftsmen, and architects.

To FORM studios, the business of Architecture is to design in such a manner that the purity of intent is realized while meeting the requirements of function with the goal to surpass the client’s expectations.

Within this studio the idea is to explore the meaning of FORM as architecture and apply those findings to unique interpretations of the creation of space. Precedence is derived from many styles throughout history as well as those on the leading edge of technology. The use of design concepts such as proportion and scale fused with the concepts of positive and negative space allows for exploration of implied relationships and interwoven layering. This translates into an ability to draw from innumerable sources to produce a FORM which could be experienced from both inside and out. The creative process touches each aspect of the design. The result is a project that integrates with the environment, context, site, and programmatic elements. The depth of the FORM finds sanctuary in the layering of visual media such as the fluidity of cinematography, the precision of three-dimensional visualization, and the evolution of development so often found in hand sketches. Each element helps to capture the process of design, which in turn, gives a more clear meaning to the final jewel of the built FORM.
