Archilibs (Architecture ad libs) is an experimental design studio exploring the Form of Architecture and the Architecture of Form. A conceptual investigation, digital and analogue, through a process of drawing and making. Research that is both technical and philosophical. Archilibs questions and reiterates the mission of form through continuous research, intense interrogation, and devotion to craft. It explores the geo(graphic)s, inform(action)s and morpho(logic)s of architecture. The methodology of work is not limited by the normal conventions of architectural delineation of form making, rather a representation of diverse types of explorations, material, connections, notions; a body of works that transvers a wider process of the inherent reasons underlying the verbalisation, visualisation, and materialisation of the architectural construct. Some constructs start more as discursive investigations, some are visual records, some hint, others never reveal their architectural subject. In all, they open up new frontiers of the imagination whilst embracing, and never discarding, the power and potential of both analogue and digital form making.
