office ca  is a design research collaborative that explores alternate methods for architectural practice. We posit that a search for absolute truths often involves doubt and speculation, and so we exaggerate these conditions to closely examine their role in the production of cultural narratives. Our work therefore recalls at times the mythological (doubt), and other times the science-fictional (speculation). In these contexts, examining geometry is our way of reconciling human beings’ evolving relationships to virtual worlds, modes of communication/representation, and mutable objects. Some projects trap users in oversized diagrams as a means of revealing the mechanisms of virtual space. Others manifest themselves as live simulations or war-game scenarios. Regardless of the format, our objective is always to highlight hidden oddities or curiosities that constitute our daily interactions with spaces, and objects. We make material things, which we smash, inflate, knock over. We write down thoughts about fictional worlds and alternate realities/timelines/futures. We research curious objects, such as software, duct tape, mylar, and bean bags. We are fascinated by the absurdities of constraints, codes (in every sense of the word), and histories of architecture. Through the act of designing and making, we strive to continue a dialogue about physical/virtual realities, distant memories, and weird hallucinations.  @officeca

Ausgang  is interested in where we are, and in that place addressing exclusion, questioning territory, commenting on history, envisioning futures, and constructing surrealities. The practice is tethered between a specific geography and the endless expanse of the global village; dealing with issues of the local and issues of the global in the age of the internet.  Having experienced the rootlessness of transiently practicing architecture in Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia, and Portland, Chas Wiederhold has rooted himself near home in Southwest Ohio. Chas has worked as a professional camp counselor, in social services, as a bartender, gallery manager, aspiring architect, and for a good chunk of 2014 paraded around dressed as Cincinnati’s Union Terminal to pass a S270 million sales tax. His interest in Place sent him on the solo #placeschangetour where he biked 2200 miles around the Midwest in 30 days to investigate why folks are passionate about where they call home. Chas works full time as a designer at GBBN Architects and teaches first year Architecture and Interior Design at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.  @chaswied

Renee Martin “I've been working on Apple Street Market with my friend and colleague Mary Jo Minerich since October 2013, when she invited me to help get groceries back to Northside. The following June I asked Jon Flannery/Cryptogram for advice on hiring someone to design a logo; he created the mark and visual identity and has been our graphic designer ever since. There are many others who have volunteered and worked for the project, many more than contributed directly to the pieces here. We hope to open Apple Street Market, an employee- and community-owned grocery in Northside Cincinnati, in early 2020.”

SUBSTUDIO  deals with ritual, tension, bodies, and material. They work across multiple mediums and boundaries, attempting to redefine notions of practice and consumption within academia, art, and architecture.  As a combined team, co-founders Hannah Dewhirst and Ingrid Schmidt bring to the table over ten years of professional experience working for artists and architects such as Steven Holl, Anderson Architects, Rafael Vinoly, Gensler, Heather McGill, Bill Massie, Michael McInturf, and Lindsey Adelman. Both are actively teaching and developing curriculum at the college level, Dewhirst at Bowling Green State University and Schmidt at University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. After collaborating on a number of projects during their time at Cranbrook Academy of Art, they discovered common “turf,” and have successfully continued to experiment and fabricate together. In 2018, they provided Creative Direction and Fabrication services for Movement Festival in Detroit, MI, and were 2018 Curatorial Fellows at Wave Pool Gallery in Cincinnati, OH.  @substudioarchitecture

John Stoughton, Quinn Kummer, and David Corns founded  Team B Architecture & Design  in 2016. Anna Kerr joined in 2017, completing the current roster. The four have worked together previously since 2011, completing multiple award-winning projects at various scales and typologies. They are drawn to the displacement of rejected or discarded cultural objects, and to bizarre moments that arise from the ordinary—when glitches, mistakes, and exaggerations produce an uncanny quality in otherwise normal situations. Team B’s interest in the ordinary and everyday produces an inclusive and approachable language of architecture—believing that each environment should instill a unique experience of pleasure and delight in each user, viewer, and passerby.  Team B has exhibited in multiple venues including The Unsolicited Sideshow at the Chicago Architecture Biennial, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Knowlton School Of Architecture at The Ohio State University, The Center for Architecture And Design (Columbus), Houseguest Gallery (Louisville), and Wave Pool (Cincinnati). In 2016, Team B curated REJECTED: Architectural Drawings and their Stories with nearly 100 drawings on display from over 40 national and international architects. Members of Team B have taught studios at UC and Lawrence Technical University. Their work has also been published in Icon Magazine, CLOG, Room 1000 and PLAT Journal.  @t_e_a_m_b

Sean Cottengim  has straddled academic and professional roles throughout his career. As an instructor, he has primarily taught core design courses at Cincinnati and Miami University, as well as in K–12 camps and programs. His work in architecture and exhibition design has probed the possibilities of storytelling and representation in architecture. And while Suburban Diversions is compelled by the American suburbs, the name is meant to also convey a wider array of distractions considered, "contemptibly dull or ordinary."
