AUDC was founded by Robert Sumrell and Kazys Varnelis in 2001 as an experimental architecture collaborative. AUDC’s mission is to use the tools of the discipline to research the role of the individual and the community in the contemporary urban environment. Inspired by the conceptual work of radical architecture groups such as Archizoom, UFO, and Haus Rucker Co, AUDC constructs realities, not objects. Surrounding environment and society. AUDC now operates in New York.
