Testa & Weiser Inc. (Peter Testa, Devyn Weiser)


Testa & Weiser Inc. was founded in Los Angeles in 2002 by Peter Testa and Devyn Weiser, both teachers at SCI-Arc. The firm is renowned for its conceptual and technical breakthroughs, which integrate advanced material processes at all scales. For Testa & Weiser, in this post-digital age where everything is available everywhere, design has shifted from generative modelling to collecting, curating, and combining things through various forms of digital and analogue processes. They place and orient the digital interface towards architecture as a specific figurative form. Their projects have been exhibited around the world, in particular as part of the group exhibition Archaeology of the Digital, and are part of the collection at the Canadian Center for Architecture. Testa & Weiser have received many prizes, most notably the Design Arts Award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Architecture Prize from the New York Metropolitan Arts Society, and the MIT Innovation Award.
