Humans, Cities And Natures
MODU is at the forefront of an open-city movement that connects us with our urban ecology



Design Is A Social Catalyst
We leverage the environment — especially weather dynamics — to shape our experience of a place    

MODU defines a new sustainability that breaks barriers between indoor and outdoor, city and room—bringing us together in different collectives: 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 mixed-use facilities, outdoor pavilions, co-working spaces, urban homes, and other projects in between.

Based in New York City, MODU also directs a think tank with diverse experts linking 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, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Athens Olympic Committee. We thrive on work for brands with a vision—like Duggal Visual Solutions, Friends Work Here, and Confindustria Ceramica—as well as our inspiring private clients.
