The founder of a studio that doesn't exist? Dash Marshall was a handsome old white man from Australia, invented by a trio of architects, Amy Yang, Ritchie Yao and Bryan Boyer, to give their new office credibility. They use the studio's name to respond with hyperbole to issues of race, gender and class inequality. Design affects our everyday lives, so they place a particular emphasis on getting to know the client when designing. This year they were awarded the Next Progressives award from Architect Magazine. They've helped Google design office space, MoMA rethink their approach to philanthropy, and have worked with IKEA and Bloomberg. Dash Marshall Studio will be introduced by one of its three founders, Bryan Boyer, who heads up the Civic Futures department.
