The R+D Studio @shubindonaldson focuses on advancing the ideas and methods at the core of our process and practice.

We contend with questions regarding the contextual & representational nature of our work, workflow strategies, and methods of making through a process-forward methodology.


The OTHR_space is our space for Making. Where our thoughts meet material, where the process becomes tangible and unable to ignore. It is a space to collect & create, curate & converse. To live amongst, to arrange & rearrange.

It is a champion of material, substance, and process. It is where drawings, models, mockups, publications, & exhibitions can blend and become something, something different, something OTHR.

            Like the elements of which we are composed, the action of these forces extends beyond us; it rusts iron and ripens corn. Far out on every side of us those elements are broadcast, driven by many forces; and birth and gesture and death and the springing of violets from the grave are but a few out of ten thousand resultant combinations. That clear, perpetual outline of face and limb is but an image of ours, under which we group them - a design in a web, the actual threads of which pass out beyond it.




Objects is an exploraton in 1:1 form-making and collage in aluminum. More specifically, this the catalog presents moments and findings from our process. What developed was a nonchalant approach toward material composition at the intersection of a fabricators processes and our internal methodology.

This project leverages the sublime scale of the curved concrete using custom fabricated modular formliners manufactured offsite and assembled onsite.

The fomliners were constructed by CW Keller offsite and delivered to site. 

Architecture lacks the temporary nature of graphic design and visual art. However, the increased reading of architecture as image has brought architecture’s reception much closer to this realm.
