Monadnock builds character. Job Floris is co-founder of this Rotterdam-based practice, which extends from designing, researching, writing and conversing about the field of architecture. This includes the space of the street, the city and the interior. Monadnock works on contemporary buildings, consciously embedding architecture in the cultural production of our generation by interrogating themes as the contemporary and tradition, convention and banality, constructive logic and illusionary representation. Intrigued by the use of both historical precedents as contemporary visual culture, handicraft and technology and seeking interaction with other disciplines. Monadnock is aiming for an architecture which combines beauty, efficiency and transfers architectural knowledge.
