What is Supermass Studio?

Supermass Studio

Supermass Studio is a critical, creative, and collaborative design practice based in New York City with its roots grounded in landscape architecture and urbanism. Founded by Taewook Cha after working with some of the world’s largest A/E corporations and the most innovative design studios such as AECOM Design + Planning, Field Operations and Hargreaves Associates, Supermass Studio was formed in 2011 to provide innovative and imaginative solutions of super massive impacts to the otherwise normative and undistinguished urban spaces ubiquitous in today’s urban environment.

On Creativity

Supermass Studio pursues unorthodox creativity at the juncture of landscape, urbanism and ecology.

On Diversity

Supermass Studio finds opportunistic diversity in every project type, size and budget. Large or small, commercial or institutional, academic or recreational, we find new opportunity and make the most out of it.

On Responsibility

Supermass Studio is conscious of socio/environmental responsibility in design practice. It is what elevates the act of design into the act of what matters.
