The creators of Reef, Rob Ley and Joshua Stein, discuss the work of their practices and their investigations into the use of emergent technologies in architecture.
Rob Ley is the founding principal of Urbana, an architecture and design studio in Los Angeles. Urbana engages current material and formal technologies to develop environments that respond to human inhabitation and experience. Ley currently teaches graduate design studios and seminars at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc).
Joshua Stein heads Radical Craft, a Los Angeles based studio that investigates urban and material patterns while focusing on the intersection of traditional craft and contemporary fabrication techniques. He has taught design studios and seminars at Cornell University, SCI-Arc, Woodbury University, and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design as well as fabrication workshops in Barcelona, Istanbul, and Krefeld (D).
