Office Party is an international research and design collective specializing in the production of temporary events, installations, and exhibitions. The office critically examines the role of parties and similar ephemeral spaces as the origin of complex social and material networks with urban, political, and environmental effects. Office Party further investigates the ways that parties provide insight into the development of architecture as a temporary and responsive mode of space-making through written and editorial work.
Office Party is directed by Chase Galis and Christina Moushoul.
