Hyper-Real Studios builds off of Jean Baudrillard’s theories on the role of media tand the blur of the real with the simulacrum to create an animation studio that progressively exerts itself onto its context over the creative process of writing and producing animated films. [1]

Health Strip

Global Architecture Brigades Competition - Team: Giorgio Angelini, Alexander Tehranian, Duncan White, Nicholas Weiss Spring 2012 1200 sq. ft. health clinic in Honduras

Designed as a small and easily built clinic, the Health Strip in Honduras remains incredibly mindful of the limited resources and unskilled volunteer labor that would take part in constructing the project. Composed of easily framed walls and concrete masonry units, the project remains simple to construct and assemble despite maintaining certain architectural qualities that might appear otherwise. The sloped roof is constructed separately and bolted to the structure and creates an open gathering space adjacent to the building while covering the open air waiting room .
