With pleasure. And a contradiction. At GEFFKEN MIYAMOTO, the construction management is based on an efficient network of experienced partners, whilst design development is done with time and quiet. We call it Architectural Analysis – and our clients can see projects evolving from first scetch to opening.

Research

GEFFKEN MIYAMOTO’s in-house research and development is the networks’s creative powerhouse.

Always keeping an eye out for „Things we do not recognise as what they are“, we create ideas and emotions for a world in which ancient rituals and instincts contrast with new technologies and a dramatically transformed environment.

Based on our Geld, Gold und Häkeldecken Statement (English: “Money, Gold and Doilys”) we’re continually involved in researching information that can be utilised for its Architectural Analysis.
