It is the collaboration between studios rather than between individuals. Having known each other for almost 6 years, we understand each other’s design thinking and values. There are commonalities between us as individuals, and our design ethos and sensibilities also overlap at various levels. What makes this collaboration unique is the idea of two teams getting engaged right from design research stage, and our commitment to knowledge sharing, with the potential to replace monotony with stimulating multiplicities. Mayer’s cutting edge design research and Collaborative Architecture's spatial thinking with their understanding of Indian ethos and possibilities of local technology should be able to maneuver local knowledge with a global vision. With a new office set up in Beijing, the collaboration looks at exploring the markets of China and the Middle East.
