+E/MX (Eco/Mech) Series: The E/MX Series is comprised of non-inhabitable networked mechanicals with specific funcionality in ecologically differentiated scenarios. They are capable of acting as collectives and therefore constitute a dynamically decentralized SWARM_INFRASTRUCTURE. These drones, bots and other members of a METAL_ZOO range from stand-alone mechs to ecological agents that are capable of being implanted into terrains, building envelopes, severely degraded ecologies and other scenarios in formation.

E/MX_03 : Disc_Drone

E/MX_04 : Super_Cell

E/MX_05 : Super_Case


SDS_12 : App_House (BOX.02)

+SDV (Stripped-Down Villa) Series: The SDV series is comprised of living units that have specific functionality in spatial and environmental scenarios. (For example, an urban context with degraded air quality.) However, they are not bound to a site at the level of property. Instead, they are structurally and infrastructurally independent and free to roam or engage in intelligent settlement. In their nimble property-independent existence they are capable of dynamic organization. What is more, they are in organocentric feedback loops with their environments making them connected yet siteless. They are PROPERTY_EX.

SDV_10 : Organ_A (ORG-N/ECO-X)

SDV_11 : Organ_B (ALIEN-EMBED)

SDV_12 : Organ_C (CLOUD-SEEDER_6)

SDV_02 : Aerophyte_X

SDV_03 : Hydrophiliac

+SDS (Stripped-Down Shelter) Series: Like the SDV series, the SDS series is comprised of living units. However, the SDS units explore more general concepts of property-independent living. While they are self-contained at the level of structure and resource-harvesting they are in less-intensive relationships with their potential environments than SDV's are. Some SDS units have special functionality such as income generation through micro-power sales or advertising platforms.

SDV_07 : Soft_Cell (BETA)

SDV_08 : Soft_Cell (MITOSIS)

SDV_09 : Soft_Cell (EXO)

SDV_04 : Atmosphyte_HEX

SDV_05 : Air_CULEX

+SMW (Small Worlds) Series: Small Worlds, or Alien Embeds, are separate yet connected scenarios. Each Small World is perhaps an independent construct but, more likely, zones of a larger world that has formed off-shore in a lagoon-like ecological environment. There are structures that appear domestic, commercial, infrastructural, logistical and formed in a way that seems specific to the amphibious zones that they inhabit. They are simultaneously alien and embedded. Pre-fabricated and terreformed synthetic ecologies, terrains and cultivated aquatic wildernessnes play host to plant life, marine life and water fowl. Occasionally one will find a mobile polypedic structure. Quite often, however, one will see drones.

+ ZOO Series Bestiary | Botanicals - Theriomorphic Scenarios: These sketch-scenarios explore a framed relationship between animal and/or plant life, architectural form, atmospheric modeling and self-reflexive interface graphics. They are abbreviated studies in serialized graphics with iterative form, speciated animal partners and the ephemerality of environment and interface.

Theriomorphs A/A A/B A/C

Cephalon B/A B/X B/Y

Stomatrix C/A C/X C/Y

Spiculiderm D/A D/X D/Y


+ Mediators Series Exbeds | Invaders - The Mediators series is a collection of studies for the collapse of architecture, industrial design, landscape, media and representation. They explore embeds/exbeds, graphic skins, machined landscapes, urban robots, drones, info-nodes and other micro-meso complexes.


MECHA_A38 : Dark Invader

split studio is an office for both applied and research-based projects in architecture, print, multi-media, and critical texts. its current interests are focused on the possibilities of architecture as pressured by near-future scenario planning. split studio currently sees architecture, urbanism and industrial design as platforms for exploring changes in the world based on techno-social change, intelligent structures, networked behaviors and radical ecology. based in brooklyn and on the web, split studio was founded by jason vigneri-beane (jcvb@splitstudio.com).
