Ron Arad Architects Practice Profile
Ron Arad Architects was established as an independent practice in May 2008, branching out as a daughter company of the long-established design studio – Ron Arad Associates.
The two companies share the same building in Chalk Farm, London, and enjoy the frequent overlap of interests, activities and knowledge this proximity offers. The practice comprises a team of 8 architects and architectural assistants, under the directorship of Ron Arad, Caroline Thorman and Asa Bruno, and has in the course of 2009/10 completed its first two new-built works, the Mediacité retail centre in Liege, and the Design Museum Holon, in Israel.
Ron Arad Architects’ thinking, form-finding, volumetric design and realisation draws on resources and materials that have been the source of excitement and experimentation by the design studio since its inception in 1981 as One-Off Studio. The experimentation with the limits of construction engineering, the celebration of the individual integrity and character of the materials employed in projects, and the often radical re-conception of form, are key to the activities of the practice. Supporting this is extensive experience at a variety of scales from furniture, through public art to buildings. Often working collaboratively, to create cohesive solutions that inventively engage with their context.
The practice’s work has been showcased as part of the Ron Arad: No Discipline exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (November 2008) and the Museum of Modern Art, New York (July 2009), and the Restless exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London (February 2010). Further exhibitions are scheduled for the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2011) and the DMH Israel (2012).
