Occupying the position between inception and completion, beta suggests the possibility of evolution and the expectation of change with the processes and practices of design. Fields are both formations and phenomena, they are collections bound by affinities, intensities, qualities or logic.
Beta-field is an interdisciplinary design/research office with a multimodal approach to practice. Our work includes buildings, landscapes, environments, installations, exhibitions, texts, design workshops and research projects. With backgrounds in architecture, industrial design, landscape architecture, and exhibition design, along with experience working as researchers, designers, and educators, we developed a view of design practice that operates through various modes of inquiry, development, and production. We focus not only on the built environment, but also on the effects of design on knowledge, technology and culture.
