Innovate. Design. Build.


our Mission

[MS] Studios has in its core mission the expansion of the Architect's role to the future of design in Architecture and to the future of tech in Architectural Design. Built from a unique professional experience in these two different fields - architecture and tech - this team of Architects has the knowledge, the experience and the skills to build large scale structures in physical sites and the know-how to design and team-build for immersive digital spaces - which will be inevitably the future for all current two-dimentional sites.

The Architecture of the future is wanted fluid, organic and adapted to us, the most organic of beings, the process and workflow is wanted Parametric and optimised, naturally powered by high-end, AI,  computational tools.

''The Future of Architecture relies undoubtedly on the future of Design. The Future of both, Architecture and Design, is happening in the physical world as much as in the digital one. For both, digital and physical, the technological driving force will be AI and the most current Architect has the sole ability to run them all.''
