Fernanda Vuilleumier practices architecture within a broader context of pro formative research

in which the medium of architecture is an active condition. Her work encompasses client-based

projects in a wide range of scales, including hypothetical architectural proposals and temporary

perceptions, contexts and nature.

Vuilleumier focuses on material innovation, research, application, and ingenuity within a broader

social and cultural context while providing well-rounded architecture and design

services. Vuilleumier’s methodology is to negotiate complex relationships between the observer

and the object.

Vuilleumier engages with high and low technologies and innovative construction materials’

systems to explore architecture as an evolved, critical functionality. Designs include hybrid

materials, printed surfaces, and complex repetitive arrangements of elements. The resultant

tectonic language facilitates the adaptation and evolution of the functional necessities, at the

same time creating creative environments that are at once spatial and material.
