E/L STUDIO is the architecture and design collaboration of Elizabeth Emerson and Mark Lawrence, AIA. Together, our experience reflects a broad range of project types and scales. We share a deep belief in the transformative potential of design. We believe in the promise of architecture to mitigate social conditions and enable positive change.
Operating from bases in New York City and Washington, DC, we draw from our two locations - innovation and flexibility from the metropolis, civic and public engagement from the capital. The hybrid of these two environments enables us to envision new solutions.
In our work, we resist the tendency to calcify the status quo as we resist customary stylistic distinctions. In search of new tectonic solutions which, through their construction, anticipate new programs and new events, we develop strategies and resolutions which are unique to the problems and potential posed in each individual project. We create an architecture which is anticipatory; which fosters new relationships and growth.
