DISTANT REALITIES is an experimental design studio and architectural practice founded by Marine Lemarié and Nicolas Stephan. Distant Realities understands design and architecture as a medium to unveil hidden realities and possible futures in an entangled world governed by intricate systems of rules and obligations. Our work relies deeply on our interest in ecology, politics, economy and technology and can be described as research-based, aiming to give alternative realities to current worldly situations. We do not consider our projects proposals, but scenarios, incorporating elements of the utopian as well as the dystopian. We merge the latest digital techniques with conceptual thoughts to create narratives in which unseen realities transform into visible ones.
We explore existing realities. We imagine future ones.
