Rael + San Fratello

Virginia San Fratello and Ronald Rael (@vasfsf & @rrael) draw, build, 3D print, teach, and write about architecture and design as a cultural endeavor deeply influenced by craft traditions and contemporary technologies. Wired magazine writes of their innovations, “while others busy themselves trying to prove that it’s possible to 3-D print a house, Rael and San Fratello are occupied with trying to design one people would actually want to live in”. They are founding partners of the Oakland based Make-Tank, Emerging Objects and speculate about the social agency of architecture in their studio, RAEL SAN FRATELLO. You can see their drawings, models, and objects in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. [Website]
