Inspired by Midcentury: WXY Studio is part 3 of a 5-part series featured in our July 2019 Special Edition newsletter.
WXY is an award-winning multi-disciplinary practice specializing in the realization of urban design, planning and architectural solutions in challenging contexts. Focused on innovative approaches to public space, structures and urban issues, the firm’s work engages both site-specific design and planning at multiple scales. The firm’s commissions are in collaboration with community-based, public authority, and private clients.
Here, WXY tells a visual story of how their work has taken inspiration from two European modernists, bookended on one side by an example of early modernism from Adolf Loos, and on the other by the last work Le Corbusier completed before his death in 1965.
