Christoph Zeller and Ingrid Moye, of Zeller & Moye, discuss how they started their practice and how collaborations with artists and architects help enable them to work globally. Constructing Practice traces the narratives of young firms from around the globe, featuring the participants of a Columbia GSAPP symposium that took place on November 17, 2017, and expands the conversation to include many others, to tell us how they do what they do. Hosted by GSAPP Professor Juan Herreros, principal of Estudio Herreros in Madrid.
Zeller & Moye was founded in 2013 and operates between Mexico City and Berlin. The studio designs a wide range of projects at all scales, from furniture design to large cultural buildings in different parts of the world. Christoph Zeller and Ingrid Moye have been practicing architecture for over ten years, including work for international practices SANAA and Herzog & de Meuron, where they lead projects such as the Tate Modern Switch House and the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012.
"We see ourselves as an international architecture office, although we do site-specific work, which means we are not designing buildings without looking at the context where they are, even if we are not necessarily based in that place."- Ingrid Moye
