Farzin Farzin is a multidisciplinary design studio led by architect Farzin Lotfi-Jam working across architecture, urbanism, computation and media.
From modeling the control matrices of smart cities to spatializing the cultural logics of social media, the studio is research-based and multimediatic—researching with datasets, designing with algorithms, fabricating with robots, and expanding audiences across digital platforms.
Farzin Farzin sees discourse as uniquely spatialized and disseminated in architectural exhibitions, creating opportunities to pose important questions to the public and make new urgencies evident. Working in this way has allowed the studio to operate collaboratively and with diverse clients.

Farzin Lotfi-Jam is director of Farzin Farzin, a multidisciplinary studio that designs spaces, software, and media. He is faculty in The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at the Cooper Union and holds advanced degrees from Columbia University and RMIT University, and is currently an inaugural Open Call artist at The Shed in New York City. Farzin’s research investigates how architecture and cities are transformed by digital technologies and their attendant power relations, looking at scales from the corporeal to the planetary. His research has been supported by the Veski organization, the Graham Foundation, and Akademie Schloss Solitude, and has been collected by the Centre Pompidou. He has been exhibited at Storefront for Art and Architecture, MAXXI, the Oslo Architecture Triennale, the Istanbul Design Biennial, the Venice Architecture Biennale, and elsewhere.
