“There’s something local and discrete and tangible about architecture, but it touches so many things that are regional or planetary,” reflects architect Michael K Chen of MKCA. There are the buildings, of course, but also supply chains for materials, labor flows in construction, long-term social environmental impacts of built projects. This awareness pervades Chen’s projects— which range from residential interiors to hardcore research on cellular data infrastructure to architectural community aid.
