AUTO CORRECT Architecture can’t live in the cloud. It’s too heavy and conceptually burdened by the weight of its own history to be the next big thing. Rather than putting architecture into the cloud we can put the cloud into architecture - curating assemblages of everyday objects into buildings - delivering architecture to your front door. Auto Correct is a shifting arrangement of things that reduces, or elevates, architecture into a thin film. It’s architecture of display and protection; a cross between a plastic slipcover and a formfitting vitrine; encasing consumer goods that are piled up into totems of domestic display. This is Mies and Johnson on autopilot – a drone’s view of the home. Team: Kyle Reynolds, Jeff Mikolajewski, Anna Doran

In a nutshell, is-office is interested in a lot of arbitrary things having to do with buildings, objects, and cities. We capriciously choose concepts and test them with projects and writing to define a broad framework for action - an attitude about architecture. Working without the net of a finely tuned disciplinary project, is-office performs a live dress rehearsal of architectural inquiry. This way of working, unwed to historicism and ideology but well-versed in inclination and bias, allows us to stay nimble and cover lots of ground. In other words, our work looks like this and that and its all part of the plan.
