FreelandBuck is a Los Angeles and New York City-based architectural office founded and led by Brennan Buck and David Freeland. Established in 2010, the office makes buildings, spaces, and objects that engage the public through layers of meaning, illusion and visual effect.
With each project, FreelandBuck aims to create distinct spaces that contribute to a more stimulating, aesthetically engaging, and challenging world. The firm’s architecture and public art work is noteable for its visual richness, intricate spatial sequences, cultural reference and use of drawing, as both design method and autonomous form of work.
FreelandBuck is a winner of the Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices Prize in 2019. They were named a finalist for the 2018 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, a member of Architectural Record’s 2017 Design Vanguard, and a winner of the 2017 AIA LA Next LA Award for their project, Second House. Other recent projects include Stack House, a residential project in Los Angeles that was both designed and developed by FreelandBuck; MINI Living Urban Cabin in Los Angeles; Parallax Gap, an installation commissioned by the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum; and the Los Angeles headquarters of Hungry Man Productions, among other residential, commercial, and cultural commissions.
