“It has been a very strange couple of years for Morphosis,” Sam Carters said of his latest work.
“I’ve been working on Morphosis for more than six years, so I’m really happy that I can finally share that work with the public and hopefully make it into something that’s something that will be a big piece of my legacy.”
The architect said his work was not designed to compete with existing architectural styles, but instead to combine different elements of the old with new ones.
“We’ve seen in the last couple of weeks that we’re in a new space, and we’re going to be doing things that are completely different than the old Morphosis and we want to create something that is completely different,” he said.
“So it’s not like we’re trying to do something similar to Morphosis that will compete with that and then we’ll be able to say, ‘Well, we’re doing this too.'”
In his latest project, Carters reimagined the existing Morphosis lobby from a design he said he “wanted to do for about 10 years.”
He also reimagines the lobby, with new furnishings and a new logo.
“We wanted to create a place that was a bit different from Morphosis, but very similar to the old one,” he told the audience.
“It had this really unique feeling.
So the new logo and the new layout was just a natural evolution from the old logo.”
The architect told the crowd that his work had been the subject of some criticism before it was completed, but said that he was now seeing positive responses.
“The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive,” he added.
“And it’s very rare to have people say, “No, this is not what we expected.
