Phorm is a studio-based fraternity, operating above and below the tropic line. The practice is experienced in small to medium scale residential, multi-residential and remote micro-resort projects.
Since its inception in 2000, the practice has focused on developing a “duality” within the practice profile by maintaining a balance of projects between the South-East corner and regional Queensland.
An underpinning strategy for most project-work is the initial mapping of the broader physical and cultural landscapes. These investigations often synthesis into the key determinants of plan, spatial pattern and built form in a responsive “mediation” of habitation and place. The Practice is engaged with the ideaology of “phorm finding as opposed phorm making”.
The practice was featured in the recent exhibition “Place Makers: Contemporary Queensland Architects” presented at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art.
Phorm A+D has been selected as one of 23 emerging young practices from around the world to feature in Wallpaper* Magazine's Architect's Directory 2009. The conceptual project designed for this Directory entitled 29 30"01' SOUTH is currently on display in Rotterdam as part of the 4th International Architecture Biennale.
