Overview: 

The book Spatial Practice is a collection of projects and essays on Axi:Ome llc of St. Louis, a young architectural design studio. Like most young designers they employ digital tools as design process. The difference between their and other young digital practices is the final output of the design resolution. Axi:Ome llc fully develops their work within the digital and physical realm. Each model and prototype is crafted with the same care as the building itself, and represents the practice’s desire for more sophisticated spatial form in the current built environment. 

Spatial Practice is a manual for students and young architects looking to question and challenge the current architectural profession. The book is an inspirational collection of work developed from 2000 through 2004. It documents the process and detailed research for each project, giving intellectual definition to architectural production. This book outlines the multi-disciplinary process of Axi:Ome from graphics and engineering to computational, spatial, and experimental attitudes toward architecture.
