rat[LAB] was founded on the technological strength it possessed. The studio has already been functioning as a team of remotely working associates from different time zones, with cloud computing as one of their practice tools. The pandemic experience has shown the team that technology supports their practice to adapt to the surprises that the world can throw at us. Additionally, savings from previous projects has helped the team stay afloat, in any case of fears that they may have encountered.
Conceived by rat[LAB] Architecture, the Pop Culture Laboratory at TOKYO has spaces organized in a fluid manner at different levels connected through external ramps that flow across the fluid skin in a fragmented manner.
As a part of WADe Awards 2017, rat[LAB] Studio Architecture was commissioned to design a celebratory trophy that can abstractly represent womanhood and celebration that the award signifies. This was through a two-stage open competition floated by the organizers wherein the studio participated with their conceptual idea, later developed into a fabricated product in a short span of time.
