LIONarchitecture, started in 2010 by Matthew Teismann and Charles Vega, underscores architecture’s participatory role with existence. Our work approaches architecture obliquely through practice-based research and epistemology. A design strategies firm, LIONarchitecture is committed to the practice of architecture through the open-discussion of design approaches. Be it exploring the great mutualism between the natural and built, or questioning the validity of an architectural lexicon which has persisted through time, LIONarchitecture is more a dialogue than it is a practice. We believe there is a disconnect that plagues our profession. LIONarchitecture is removing the filters known as styles; we aim only to make what is just. Our work includes the award winning BadSeed House and the Urban Green-House Project, and published writings such as Futureless and Anti-Haptic Experience.
