Joel Lamere + Cynthia Gunadi / GLD Architecture

Joel Lamere and Cynthia Gunadi are artists and architects whose work illuminates and responds to site specificities. Their projects aim to provide moments of interaction, strangeness, awareness, or delight. 

They founded the architectural practice Gunadi Lamere Design in 2010. As a team, they are preoccupied with architectural craft at all scales, from furniture design to urban strategy, with the conviction that highly crafted design, quality, and longevity are intricately linked. Their art installations have been exhibited in the Design Biennial Boston, MIT150 Festival of Arts, Science, and Technology, the Evergreen Museum in Baltimore, and elsewhere.
