Entry Description: A founder of an LA-based design/build firm possesses a deep respect for the unique landscape of the Mojave High-Desert. His desire to work in harmony with the physical environment is the founding principle of his Artist Studio Project in Joshua Tree, California. The south side of Joshua Tree will be home to Sofio’s Artist Studio Project. Two structures will house global students of design and building, coming to learn about New American Design, a movement pioneered by Sofio seeking to create a partnership between artist and their physical environment. The Artist Studio Project will draw on theories developed during the modernist architectural era of the late 40s through the early 60s, focusing on small-scale living and organic modernism that is an integral part of the physical environment. The structures will use energy efficient passive heating and cooling systems, and a limited palette of materials including steel, glass and concrete.
