Architecture Is Fun, Inc. makes everyday life fun.

Architecture Is Fun is a collaborative practice that explores the nexus of architecture, education and experience. For the past decade, this small, yet, successful studio has spread its influence as educative design strategists, consulting to major organizations in myriad fields, from museums and schools to foundations and associations, on a wide range of issues but always with a long-standing commitment to build accessible places of learning, living and fun that are indispensable for human growth and development. Thanks to its seminal approach to play, Architecture Is Fun has been tapped to work on such a visually compelling and socially engaging host of museum, library, school, healing, community and public space projects. Renown collaborators, architects and educators Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown called the studio’s oeuvre “work of significance and relevance, joy and seriousness, range and depth.”
