Back to process


“Transpositioning” is the working method where participants are invited to break from their professional role and switch perspectives with others in the group. By releasing ourselves from disciplinary conventions for a short period of time, we can foster a greater sense of possibility, free ourselves from habitual thinking, and build empathy for others involved in the process.

One can compare this to how some orchestras let their musicians rehearse on each other’s instruments in order to better understand the challenges and possibilities of other parts. Upon returning to one’s own instrument, this new knowledge elevates the collective quality of the performance.

Within our studio, we emphasize an open exchange between roles and disciplines, where architects, landscape architects, interior architects, and graphic designers collaborate in an integrated process.

Transpositioning creates a universal way of communicating across cultures and disciplines. It promotes the positive benefits of moving out of one’s comfort zone, defies narrow-minded thinking and encourages holistic approaches.
