Batay-Csorba Architects strives to createprojects which engage their context, users, and the public realm. The practiceis committed to creating transformative spatial experiences through theexploration of site, typology, materiality, and movement. Batay-Csorba's workis dedicated to the construction of real spaces that engage people and place, and is based onthe belief that architecture has a fundamental role in shaping how weexperience the world. Each projectis generated through a deep reading of the site in search of unexpected relationshipsthat can both tie each project to a larger urban contribution and shape newperceptual experiences.
The work of their practice ranges from small scale installations, graphic visualization and multi-media design to architectural and interior design and large scale urban planning.
