Overview

Normal Projects/Michael Chen Architecture is an architecture practice producing both built commissioned work and design research. We integrate diverse thinking about architecture, interiors, products, infrastructure, and urbanism to produce work that embodies an enduring fascination with intricacy and the interactions of multiple systems and elements. Our approach is deeply informed by curiosity and a love of tinkering, of drawing, of discourse, and of making. We believe in technology, and make extensive use of specialized digital tools and platforms for design, fabrication, and collaboration. These are key to our practice and inform both new ways of working and exploration into new ways of living with, producing, and thinking about architecture.
