spatial practice believes in greatness. We strive to realize desires and dreams. spatial practice is an accumulation of ideas, people and circumstances. We believe that true design is about bringing order into complexity - a dynamic complexity - the essential feature of human beings, a culture, or a society. We look beyond basic conditions and restrictions – such as site, zoning, program and budget – to identify the essence of each spatial intervention. We catalyze architectural and formal thinking into a deeper context that concerns human interactions in specific cultural, social, and economic settings. Committed to creative-thinking and thorough decision-making, we design as a team. We collaborate with some of the best creative minds from different fields to create a dynamic and open platform that confronts and addresses spatial issues with a wide spectrum of insights. In constant operation, the office’s research arm, spatial tactics, strategically nourishes this platform through continuous investigations, lecture series, publications by playing with polarities and differential, from ordinary to extraordinary. Since its formation, spatial practice has paid particular attention to materialize the concept by confronting the necessary constraints along the way. We devote equal rigor and criticality to every project stage, regardless of scale. spatial practice is formed by Dora Chi & Erik Amir as a collaborative office for architecture, urbanism and design. --- Erik Amir is DPLG registered architect.
