Phu Hoang and Rachely Rotem, co-directors of MODU, will present their work investigating architecture’s relationship with weather. The work proposes a significant shift in traditional modes of environmental thinking: architecture, as a conceptual and cultural practice, should be informed by and adaptable to weather.
Juan Herreros, Principal of estudio Herreros, will provide a response to their work while also discussing his practice’s approach to the environment.

Co-directed by Phu Hoang and Rachely Rotem, the practice’s client list represents a diverse group of organizations and individuals that include Design Museum Holon, Creative Time, Art Basel Miami Beach and numerous private clients. MODU has won international design competitions and awards sponsored by the Architectural League of New York, American Institute of Architects, Core77 and the Netherlands Architecture Institute.
