F A R + D A N G is a multidisciplinary design office engaged in the complexities and multiplicities of contemporary life. Their research, their strategy, and their work focuses on transforming intangible ideas into spatial realities and physical form. They are interested in taking a project from its initial conception to its final built form. The firm is formed by two visionary architects based out of Dallas, Texas, and their names form part of the firm’s name. Faruqui and Dang. F A R + D A N G.
Faruqui said that, “Almost since I could pick up a pencil, I’ve been drawing—a large portion of my youth was spent doing illustration or some form of attempted art. I’m fortunate to have had a lot of arts exposure throughout my childhood and education.”
Their goal is to heighten the immaterial such as ideas, hopes, and space, by way of the material such as site, structure, and enclosure. Regardless of context, scale, and budget, this remains their goal. Find their three projects being posted today towards the end of the blog.
Dang said during an interview with Surface Magazine, “Even at a very young age, I was attracted to endeavors that were related to the arts such as painting and sculpture. As I got older, I was fascinated with film and cinematography, as well as geometry and things made very precisely with minimal means. Architecture seemed like a natural discipline as it’s a bit rational, a bit intuition-driven.”
