Create - About Us

  Inspired by the creativity and inventiveness of the Architect and craftsman from Greek mythology, Daedalus Workshop is a design/build collaborative involved in a wide variety of architectural and interior design projects, fabrications and installations.

With a hands-on approach, strengthened by our experience in construction and concern for budget and schedule, we consider the process of design and the act of making to be an ongoing, collaborative investigation. We see Architecture as an Art that should involve painting and literature as much as the laws of physics and building codes. We believe it should bear the influence of theater, dance, graphic design, textiles, music and film as well as the developer, engineer and contractor.

Adhering to this philosophy not only complements and advances our built work, but also compels us to engage other projects that are more experimental in nature. Whether it is designing stage sets for a dance company, composing a visual essay on Rome, or planning a series of theoretical houses, these types of projects, although outside the expected bounds of an architectural practice, provide the opportunity to explore new means of defining space and transcend the traditional role of the architect and builder.

To Daedalus, design was about invention; it was about the desire to create something new that responds to a problem or solves a need without necessarily conforming to convention. Our work is based on those principles, and the belief that any work of Art, to be meaningful and relevant, must question, provoke and inspire.
