We really don’t know exactly when MOS started. Although we didn’t have an office, it was sometime in 2003. When we began, our name was !@#?, which we quickly found was too difficult to use because 1. you couldn’t pronounce it and 2. you couldn’t get a web address. So eventually we drifted towards MOS – an acronym of our names and a shared desire to be horizontal and fuzzy, as opposed to tall and shiny. In 2006, we began our makeshift office around a large table and began working through a range of design experiments – a make-believe of architectural fantasies, problems, and thoughts about what we would be building if we could only get the work. As we’ve grown, we continue to operate around one large table as a design office that works closely on each project through playful experimentation and serious research.
