Crisis: Mason White + Lola Sheppard
LATERAL OFFICE, founded in 2003 by Mason White and Lola Sheppard, is an experimental design practice that operates at the intersection of architecture, landscape, and urbanism. The studio describes its practice process as a commitment to “design as a research vehicle to pose and respond to complex, urgent questions in the built environment,” engaging in the “wider context and climate of a project– social, ecological, or political.”
LATERAL OFFICE is committed to an architecture that responds directly to the demands of the 21st century – and the subsequent new typologies made possible by an architecture that confronts today. Recent work and research focuses on powerful design relationships between public realm, infrastructure, and the environment.
