About

Bollinger Design is a modest Albuquerque-based studio, created by Matthew Bollinger shortly after receiving a graduate degree in architecture (M.Arch) from the University of New Mexico and a graduate degree in painting (M.F.A.) from San Francisco Art Institute. The studio has since been involved in the design and production of projects across almost every medium, including digitally fabricated architectural sculpture, interactive web development, and graphic design media. Bollinger Design continues to expanded its oeuvre, while focusing less on the medium and more on ideas and the manner in which they develop.

Patterns multiplying
Redirect our view
Endless variations
Make it all seem new
Can you recognize the patterns that you find stuck in your mind?

-Devo, ‘Patterns’ (1982)

Bollinger Design embraces projects through an interdisciplinary lens of architectural ideology; site, section and plan are integral to research, studio practice, and experimentation. On one hand the studio is invested in projects that require significant research and experimentation. These projects provide a testing ground for us to help germinate a studio environment that is ripe with creativity. We take advantage of what we learn from these projects through the design of our more client based work. The constraints of all projects are treated as opportunities that are challenged through a multifaceted studio environment with the hopes of solving typical problems in new ways, with new tools. Through the studio's unique blend of art and architecture, we are able to approach every project from a fresh perspective to create rich spatial, graphic, interactive and visual experiences. By mixing research, creativity and technology with a strong desire to make working fun, Bollinger Design attempts to create new and unique experiences.
