Architecture Is Fun Team

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.”

Studio Founding & Educative Design™ Philosophy:

Architect Peter Exley FAIA RIBA and educator/designer Sharon Exley MAAE ASID cofounded the Architecture Is Fun as a multidisciplinary studio in 1994. FUN is an important part of the firm name and a critical part of their trademark educative design process. This ideology – design that makes education fun and design that is fundamentally educated – – is fulfilled through its participatory nature. As an architectural think-tank for play and learning, the studio stands apart in their willingness to continuously innvoate and evolve. They design the way they lead, manage, source, create, and collaborate. Multiple perspectives are valued. Education, experience and design inform each other. The firm’s team of multidisciplinary professionals has included architects, art therapists, educators, scientists, historians, medical professionals, graphic, industrial designers and more. The inventive, broad-minded attitude of the studio extends outward to clients.

Its collective process – inclusive, focused and committed – brings everyone to the design table, values multiple perspectives and shapes stories through an architecture of complexity,familiarity, beauty and richness.

Architecture Is Fun develops opportunities to connect clients and communities in the creation of meaningful public space and play experiences. At a grassroots level, the studio shapes spaces that instill pride and bring empirical value. On a global scale, the architectural work and philosophy bring thought leadership and the power of play to those who experience its projects, presentations or publications.
