Full Description

MDSA MDSzerbaty Associates Architecture prides itself on creating buildings and interiors with presence. Its work carefully considers texture, color, and natural light, considering the composition and use of materials while exploring the inherent qualities. Light, Color, Texture examines a select number of the firm’s projects, carefully looking at the details and reviewing the structure to see how the material and design has withstood the passage of time and the environmental effects. The examples of work showcased demonstrate how the architect and the firm deliberate and consider materials, colors, and textures when designing a project and how a review across a body of work provides evidence of this evolutionary idea.
