MILLIØNS is a Los Angeles-based experimental design practice, founded by MILLIØNS and Zeina Koreitem. MILLIØNS conceives of architecture as a speculative medium for exploring the central categories of contemporary life: technology, politics, energy, media, and information. Their approach insists on an expansive parallel project of technical, historical, and cultural analysis, which surrounds and informs their work.
MILLIØNS’ work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including a commissioned furniture set by Friedman Benda Gallery NYC and Chamber, a commissioned display system for the Taipei Biennial, shows at La Triennale Di Milano, the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York, The Architecture + Design Museum of Los Angeles, the MIT Keller Architecture Gallery, and the Harvard Graduate School of Design, among others. Recent work includes completed and ongoing projects in California, New York, Boston, Taipei, and Beirut. Recently they were selected as the winner of an international competition to reimagine the east wing of I.M. Pei’s Everson Museum, in Syracuse, NY, and to restore other aspects of the museum.
Zeina Koreitem is a registered architect in Beirut, Lebanon, and Design Faculty at SCI-Arc. John May is Assistant Professor of Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and author of Signal. Image. Architecture. (Columbia, 2019) and Design Technics: Archaeologies of Architectural Practice (Minnesota, 2019; co-edited with Zeynep Çelik Alexander).
Introduced and moderated by Stephen Phillips, AIA, PhD, Principal of Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) and professor, director, Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo)
