If you’ve been paying attention to what’s happening in architecture, you might have noticed that the architects at Thom Mayne’s Morphosis have been quietly crafting a completely new visual aesthetic. Jutting symphonies of sculptural forms, varying in size and shape, crescendo and undulate like birds in flight.

All of this without sacrificing the signature sustainable and ecologically sound design for which Morphosis is known. Pictured below are a few projects we’ve been privileged to work on which showcase this recent shift in Mayne’s body of work.

Happy Birthday, Thom.

The above projects reveal a snapshot of the shifting aesthetic on works that Zahner has helped the architects at Morphosis complete. Take a look at some more projects by Morphosis on ArchDaily’s tribute for Thom Mayne’s birthday. Always a pleasure to work with those willing to take risks. We’ll help you take them.
