Christoph Zeller and Ingrid Moye's practice spans two continents, with outposts in Berlin and Mexico City. Set up in 2013, the duo has past experience with the likes of SANAA and Herzog & de Meuron, and teaching posts in both Germany and Mexico. The dual cultural approach defines their work, which aims to tell the story behind each project and express the client's intentions. 'We interpret this background and feed it into the design process as a constraint or underlying identity,' they say. 'We look at the local culture and genius loci of a place to stimulate our design approach.' Recent projects include a tumbling cascade of forms for Mexico City's Archivo design museum and a cluster of serrated white shapes for the Patricia Conde Galería. They've also built a small memorial to the Anfal genocide in Kurdistan - 'we are interested in contributing to the public environment.' Global work beckons, from Berlin to Bristol and beyond.
