Asymptone

Born in New York, USA, date unknown

From the archived Documenta 11 website : www.documenta12.de//archiv/d11/data/english/index.html

Hani Rashid, Lise Anne Couture

Founded 1989 in New York, New York, USA, by Lise Anne Couture (*1959 in Montréal, Canada) and Hani Rashid (*1958 in Cairo, Egypt).

“The New York-based architectural office Asymptote is interested in the interplay between virtual and real space. In questioning the flexibility of parameters between the two, and examining the different ways in which the human body moves through spaces molded by the flow of data, Asymptote experiments with and expands traditional fields of architecture. Theirs is a kind of architecture that is more study than manifesto, an “active” part of a permanent interaction between virtual and real space. Spaces change continually and receive substantial impulses from the movement and action of its users.”
