NMDA is a Los Angeles based office dedicated to exploring the worlds of architecture, urbanism, and graphic design. Working across virtually every scale, from furniture to high rises and large scale planning projects, the office approaches design as the outcome of research and speculative thinking. We place equal emphasis on the sustainability of culture and its mirror, the sustainability of the planet.
