This 2G monograph celebrates the craft and ingenuity of MOS, the Harlem-based architecture and design studio founded by Hilary Sample and Michael Meredith in 2005. Recipient of the 2015 Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum National Design Award in Architecture, MOS is responsible for a variety of international projects, from private residences to art studios and community centers, which draw on and combine a consistent vocabulary of readily identifiable shapes from its own architectural catalog–chimneys, corridors, courtyards, roofs, windows. Recent projects include the Huyghe + Le Corbusier Puppet Theater at Harvard’s Carpenter Center; Artist Studio in Ancram, New York; the Floating House in Lake Huron, Ontario; the Welcome and Education Center, Apan Housing Laboratory in Apan, Mexico; and the IVY Coathook System. This volume looks at a representative sampling of its acclaimed projects from the past two decades.
