MILLIØNS is a Los Angeles-based experimental design practice, founded by John May 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, 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, Germany and Beirut. Recently selected as the winner of an international competition to reimagine the west wing of I.M. Pei’s Everson Museum, in Syracuse, NY. Their work has appeared in Harvard Design Magazine, Flaunt magazine, Dezeen, Architect’s Newspaper, Eflux, I.D., a+t, Sightunseen, Azure, and in a catalog of their work on experimental collective living, New Massings for New Masses: Collectivity After Orthography (MIT SA+P Press 2015).
Zeina Koreitem is a registered architect in Beirut, Lebanon, Design Faculty at SCI-Arc and a Design Critic in Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. John May is Assistant Professor of Architecture and Director of the Master in Design Studies Program at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
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)
