Deep Dive

We take a detailed look at Morphosis’ development of a design approach that is moving away from established design ‘solutions’ as a single end product and instead introduces a broader organizational system-based design process where multiple directions, products and possibilities are simultaneously in play. Case studies include Morphosis’ Kolon One and Only Tower in South Korea, Orange County Museum of Art in Costa Mesa and XR project-based research.
