nathan su

I am a designer and storyteller. Working through speculation, architecture, and film, I imagine futures from the scale of the home to the city.

 
 

SPECULATION

I operate under the conviction that speculative fiction is vital for design innovation. I aim to tell lies that reveal truths, to create strange worlds that mirror our own, and to bring together the wild fantasies of imaginary architectures with the difficult truths of our lives today.  

 
 

ARCHITECTURE

Changing Climates, Mass Migrations, Instant Information. Our world, our social structures and our technologies are all changing. In response, the way we live in, and use space will inevitably change too. My architectural work tries to be a part of that evolution, envisioning new conditions for how that change could be for the better.

FILM

In film we visit worlds otherwise inaccessible to us - worlds too distant, forbidden or imaginary. I use film to explore the characteristics of these places, and reveal the stories they tell us.
