magma architecture - founded in 2003 by Martin Ostermann and Lena Kleinheinz - is an award-winning, multidisciplinary practice operating at the interface between architecture, design and communication. The practice specializes in creating visionary landmark buildings, spectacular temporary structures, such as the shooting arenas for the London 2012 Olympics, and expressive interiors. Central to their design philosophy is the use of complex geometric forms to generate a spatial dynamic, which they feel better articulates the heterogeneity of our cities and global culture. They seek to be part of a new paradigm within architecture, one that is expressionistic, rooted in non-linear form making, and facilitated by new materiality and cutting edge technologies.
