Script Architecture PLLC is a research and design firm for architecture, urbanism and community.  Our projects range from developing methods for participatory design to realizing buildings.  Our design process focuses on the stories of people and places to create situation specific design projects.  These stories are often composed of complex data that we organize through generative code and computational design techniques.  We collaborate with artists, community members, planners, and developers to imagine projects for any situation.
