MALL’s recent work includes a single-family residence constructed out of cross-laminated timber (CLT), a mid-rise tower that resembles a sandwich, and an urban development for a small lot located in Atlanta, Georgia. The work can be described as pictorially graphic and out of place and playfully challenges the production of architecture through representation, materiality and color.
