Fieldwork sees architecture as a social and civic practice. From our homes to our schools, from our workplaces to our creative and civic spaces, we all engage with architecture on a daily basis. They believe architecture is a sensitive, spatial practice from which the entirety of life unfolds.
They are a Melbourne-based architecture and interior design studio founded in 2013. They have grown into a team of more than 25 practitioners from diverse cultures spanning expertise in the fields of architecture, commerce, design, urbanism, publishing and art.
They live in an urban age. At Fieldwork, they design for the city as the site from which to build a more equitable and environmentally conscious world. They believe in an active architecture that both shapes and is shaped by social, political, aesthetic, emotional and economic forces. They practice architecture as a living form that is agile and enduring, poetic and pragmatic, precise and optimistic: sensitive to the evolving needs of its inhabitants within a shifting local and global context.
Research, experimentation, materiality and modesty drive their design process. They imagine new ways of living, working and learning together. They believe that good architecture starts with deep listening.
Fieldwork has forged a strong reputation for its work across multi-residential housing, workplace design, education and spaces for the making and presentation of contemporary art. They apply rigorous thinking to their collaborative design process involving clients, community stakeholders and future inhabitants.
