California architectural practice Morphosis has always come up with particularly fascinating, intelligent projects, and constitutes a steady landmark on the contemporary American architecture scene.



Morphosis: Hypo Alpe Adria Bank, Klagenfurt, Austria Morphosis?s work is based on a design strategy which relies more on the macro-scale of architectural gestures than on the small scale of definition of details. The techniques employed by the California practice reject the limitations imposed by traditional forms and materials, overcoming the restrictive dualism of modernism and post-modernism. The rapid pace of change today requires us to pay more attention to the variable conditions of new urban structures and casts doubt on the construction strategies traditionally used in our cities. Morphosis applies a dynamic process offering a variety of responses and scenarios depending on the changeable forces at stake.
