Studio Chris Fox was founded by artist Chris Fox with the aim of transforming the built environment, bridging the disciplines of art, architecture and engineering. Chris has over 30 years’ experience in the built environment, navigating the complex constraints of the public domain to design and deliver landmark interventions of wonderment and beauty.


The studio has a rich skill set that includes strategic art-thinking and computational processes that impacts urban design, architecture, landscape and place making. We transform places with sculptural form that push the boundaries of what seems physically possible, whilst telling meaningful stories of place and people through time.
