Farzin Farzin is a multidisciplinary design studio led by architect Farzin Lotfi-Jam working across architecture, urbanism, computation and media.
From modeling the control matrices of smart cities to spatializing the cultural logics of social media, the studio is research-based and multimediatic—researching with datasets, designing with algorithms, fabricating with robots, and expanding audiences across digital platforms.
Farzin Farzin sees discourse as uniquely spatialized and disseminated in architectural exhibitions, creating opportunities to pose important questions to the public and make new urgencies evident. Working in this way has allowed the studio to operate collaboratively and with diverse clients.
