[MC] Studios is an Architecture and Design Studio that specialises in designing and building projects for physical environments and designing and building immersive architecture for the Real-Time Open World - commonly known as the Metaverse.

The Studios' focus is the construction of an AI-Powered Metaverse and the practice of Parametric Fluid Design as workflow and ethos for physically and digitally built projects.

The Studio was founded in 2022 by the visionaire and award winning Architect, Mariana Cabugueira Custodio dos Santos, former Senior Architect at Zaha Hadid Architects,  Architect and Art Director at the web3 company Wilder World.

''The future of Architecture undoubtedly relies on the future of spatial computing. For either physical structures or immersive open worlds, the technological driving force lies in the balance between digitally crafted spaces and automated spatial design through AI. In contemporary times it comes as no surprise that the Architect is one of the few professionals with the sole ability to run them all: digital and physical, crafted and automated.

[MC] Studios aims to lead contemporary architecture by example.''
