Agency—Agency is an award-winning New York City-based architecture and design studio directed by Tei Carpenter. The practice seeks out an expanded role for architecture by engaging buildings, objects, interiors, infrastructures, speculations, and environments. The studio’s recently completed work includes a new non-profit headquarters in downtown Houston and an installation commissioned by BMW Mini for the A/D/O Water Futures research and design program. Agency—Agency’s work has been exhibited at the Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Center for Architecture and the Venice Biennale. In 2018, Agency—Agency was honored as one of the New Practices New York by the American Institute of Architects.
