“Spatial Affairs pursues an intellectually nimble practice by pushing project constraints toward broad ends that encompass everything from ‘interior landscapes’ to urban-scaled configurations… It does so in an effort to create layered material and historic conditions that always push back toward the landscape in some form or another. The approach has resulted in a string of under-the-radar but dramatically good-looking commissions that aim to create something greater—and more cohesive—than the typical, rigidly defined arenas of normative practice might allow.” Antonio Pacheco, Architect’s Newspaper, October 2018
