Established in 2003 by Muge Belek and Frederico Fialho, [f]FLAT Architectures is an environment to research and develop architectural and media art works. The space provides the ground to develop works with the emphasis in transvergent methodologies and techniques in design. In reaction to a world built on concepts, [f]FLAT uses percepts and affects as is an extended mode of relating to life.

The ongoing research aims to assess novel constructs, in which pancomputational strategies generate multimodal spaces as design conditions.

With strong links to academia, [f]FLAT consciously aims to transfer the research into practice without bypassing the intensive design structure requisite for constant innovation.
