DUAL:workshop is a multidisciplinary design studio founded in 2007 by Phillip M. Crosby. The workshop approaches each project by exploring the relationship between the large and small scale. The hybrid nature of the workshop format allows for an oscillation between academic research and real world projects. The workshop consistently pursues the development of new ideas through invited and open design competitions and has won several awards for design excellence.
