About Merge Architects
Merge Architects is an emerging architectural practice that innovates through making. Founded by Elizabeth Whittaker, the firm’s work uncovers and capitalizes on opportunities for invention in the ordinary, and in so doing, develops new methods of production that combine digital fabrication and the hand-made. Engaging multiple mediums and scales of craft, each investigation becomes an evolving site of meditation and invention, from image, to scale model, to mock-up, to building, to city. Merge Architects works closely with our clients as well as teams of fabricators, artists, craftsmen and engineers to produce an architecture that embraces the art of making within a larger agenda: to re-define the urban and social boundaries of the city.
