OTA+ is an architecture, design and research office specializing in the application of advanced digital technologies for the visualization and fabrication of projects of all types and scale. OTA+ treats every project as an opportunity to use current design software and CNC (computer numerical controlled) machine tools to both generate and construct conceptually rigorous and formally unique design proposals. We are constantly in search of new tools and techniques to inform our design process and actively look for cross-disciplinary collaborators to push all design related fields forward. OTA+ is based in Austin, TX and is led by Kory Bieg.
OTA+ has received awards for their design work and exhibited projects at galleries internationally, including the SFMOMA, the Architectural League of New York, the Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Architectural Association in London and the AIA Gallery in San Francisco. Their work has been published in books, blogs, magazines and journals.
