Andre Caradec founded Studio Under Manufacture in 2002, in an effort to merge disciplines of architecture and design alongside emerging methods of making and management techniques necessary to implement unique solutions.
Studio Under Manufacture is an award winning architecture, design and fabrication consulting firm that draws on a broad set of disciplines to create architectural elements that are both visual and interactive. Our projects reflect a wide spectrum of knowledge from architects, artists, graphic designers, computational mathematicians, manufacturers and museum curators. The work of S/U/M has been published in numerous national and international design magazines and publications and exhibited in MoMA NY and SFMoMA. Andre is currently collaborating with Thom Faulders of Faulders Studio on an urban infrastructure project in Portland Oregon.
Technology informed by aesthetics, social awareness, craft and program specific goals is a positive medium of communication and design that enables and inspires multiple interests to collaborate from diverse viewpoints. With our unique resource of an in-house design studio and workshop with full digital milling capabilities, we experiment with and deploy new methods of prototyping and production that enrich the process of translating ideas into their tactile, physical counterparts.
