“Work of significance and relevance, joy and seriousness, range and depth.”.
~ Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown on the work of Architecture Is Fun
ARCHITECTURE IS FUN MAKES EVERYDAY LIFE FUN.
Architecture Is Fun is a collaborative practice exploring the nexus of architecture, experience and education.
For the past decade, this successful studio has spread its influence as educative design strategists, consulting to major organizations in myriad fields, from shopping malls to museums, with a commitment to build accessible places of experience, fun, and learning that are indispensable for human growth and development.
Architecture Is Fun develops projects and experiences that connect clients and communities to the creation of meaningful public space and play experiences.
Thanks to its seminal approach to play, Architecture Is Fun has been tapped to work on a visually compelling and socially engaging host of retail, museum, library, school, healing, community and public space projects – here in the U.S. and internationally.
Architect Peter Exley FAIA RIBA and educator/designer Sharon Exley MAAE ASID cofounded 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.
Through architecture, inspired interiors, artful installations, and place-specific provocations, Architecture Is Fun creates special places that hold meaning and memory for all. In a time when play is under siege, promoting scalable opportunities for all to experience fun contexts is critical.
