“Innovation is crucial to our commitment as design professionals. Innovation needs to be viewed as an iterative design process driven by ideological, philosophical positions”
NUDES founded by Nuru Karim, operates within the realm of cross-disciplinary cultures of art, architecture and computational design powered by digital “making”. tThe office works at a variety of scales and situates its projects within a wider research context, which includes teaching and writing on both art and architecture. The projects engage with the complex, layered conditions of the contemporary city. The practice seeks to create a tectonic, material and experiential architecture that is appropriate, contemporary and rooted in its context, at all scales.
Services / Sectors
Our work aims to inspire people while shaping the future. NU.DE works transcend their initial purposes to express timeless cultural, organizational and human values.
We collaborate with clients and colleagues to create experiential spaces connecting people and place.
Lines between sectors are increasingly blurred in the 21st century.
Our sector-based specialists actively share ideas within a collaborative work environment, bringing a rich blend of expertise to each client as a single creative force. Today, as we’ve grown, we continue to operate around as an innovation studio that works closely on each project through playful experimentation, serious research, and old-fashioned problem-solving.
