The designs are on the wild end of the spectrum. Often times architecture this visionary drifts from intended purpose into an aesthetic abyss. J. MAYER H. succeeds in the basic principals of construction while excelling in the experimentation of design theory. These are extraordinary structures built with real people in mind.

The basic principal followed by the studio is derived from data protection such as the linings found in privacy envelopes. The intricate designs for the envelops are often made from logos or overlapping alphanumeric text. When examined closely, the web of information creates endless variety in the collision of forms. J. MAYER H. hunts the best of these chaotic moments and incorporates them into their structural designs.
