foams is

strange
society
an attitude
Elena y Javier

foams is an trans-architectural practice working together since 2014. Based in Beijing, founded and registered in Madrid, yet itinerant across multiple locations such as Torino, Shanghai, New York and Beijing.
foams combines competition-focused interests with academic research. Ultimately interested in the act of strangeness to contest reality: imagined stories that turn into spontaneous architecture. We design critical spaces through a diversity of mediums, locations, processes, materials and scales. We push new physical realities based on contemporary inputs leading to unexpected outcomes.
We have fun.

foams was a finalist for the 2019 UABB Open Call in Shenzhen, and the Rouen Competition for Concentrico. Part of our work was published at the Spanish Pavilion b-e-c-o-m-i-n-g of the XVI Bienale di Venezia 2018. We have collaborated with the Spanish Society Association of Shanghai. Our Second Price for ACP has been featured in KooZA/rch and Beta-architecture.
