Weather Projects is a full-service architecture studio based in Los Angeles, California. Working on multiple scales and types of projects, Weather engages the ever-changing and ever-present social, economic, and natural environments through a dialogue with physical forms and spaces that consider context, function, and effects. The focus of the work revolves around ideas, attitudes, and strategies regarding, typology and organizational models, diffuse boundaries, fields and aggregations, and a preference for the primitive over the complex. The studio's belief is these physical forms, spaces, and artifacts have the ability to offer society a sense of place, of fascination, and a new way of experiencing the world.
