Megan Panzano is the founder of studioPM LLC, a design practice invested in research and production at multiple scales.
Pulling from the periphery can be productive. studioPM is committed to remaining receptive to new things that motivate design. Cultural practices and things at the architectural margins are often put in friction with familiar elements as a mode of reconsidering norms. Unusual inputs are prioritized as essential engines of the designs and design processes of this practice across all scales of output – from architectural representation to buildings and master plans.
Opposites [often] attract. Interested in the tension between architecture’s necessary stability and the variable contingent logics of occupation and activity, studioPM designs often look to pattern, geometry, and material details to assemble projects that sensitively and simultaneously mediate physical reality and perceptual change. This practice aspires to develop coherent spatial wholes of many necessary parts – with components often operating on the edge, exhibiting dual behaviors – surface and space, space and system, for one or a collection.
