Multistudio is the evolution of Gould Evans. Our new identity reflects how we think, embracing the multiple ways in which we design to uncover possibilities and engage with the world.
Multistudio collaboratively expands the practice of architecture, brand experience, city design, education design, and interiors to serve complex, and even contradictory needs of our clients and communities. The diversity of thought, people, and disciplines helps us explore place and spark possibilities of economic, social, and environmental change. And although we take on a variety of projects, neither size nor type dictates their importance.
Their impact does.
Within Multistudio, we bring multiple perspectives, talents, and expertise to each design opportunity, exchanging design dialogue and discourse to address broader challenges and solutions. This overlap of design breeds innovation that challenges the status quo, and results in a more meaningful outcome for our clients beyond what we could have imagined alone.
Collectively, with our people, collaborators, and communities, we grow through the making of projects between and across our interconnected practices:
- Brand Experience
- City Design
- Education Design
