Derived from the Latin words axiom and forme, the American based office of Axi:Ome engages in architecture as research: a mode of practice that directly interfaces with social, cultural economic and environmental influences. Over the course of eight chapters a total of eleven works from the office are examined, including the Media Arcade and Locust Office projects in St. Louis; the Amonte House, Missouri; and their design for the Carbon Tower, Dubai. Introduced by texts, and accompanied by plans, elevations and computer models, this survey also documents some 44 student projects realised under Axi:Ome’s supervision.
