Humans, Cities And Natures
MODU envisions an open city that harnesses our natures to connect people.



Design Is A Social Catalyst
We leverage the environment—especially its dynamic character—to shape places for human well-being.

MODU defines a new sustainability that catalyzes connections between indoor and outdoor, city and room, bringing us together in different collectives: as neighbors, coworkers, and families.

Led by Rome Prize Fellows Phu Hoang and Rachely Rotem, MODU is an interdisciplinary design studio creating architecture, urban spaces, and interiors. We have designed plaza pavilions, cultural spaces, co-working offices, and other projects in between. MODU is LEED accredited and a New York State MWBE. 

Based in Brooklyn, MODU directs a think tank that links a diverse group of experts in culture and industry. We collaborate with a community of leaders that includes climate scientists, sociologists, technologists, and interactive artists.

Our studio has collaborated with cultural institutions, including Design Museum Holon, Creative Time, Art Basel Miami Beach, and the Smithsonian Institution. We thrive on work for brands with a vision—like Frog Design, Duggal Visual Solutions, and Confindustria Ceramica—as well as for our inspiring private clients.

MODU is honored to be recognized by domestic and international institutions, with awards from the American Academy in Rome, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Architectural League of New York, the American Institute of Architects, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
