Max: Research + Innovation

Undertaking research to push design boundaries - to question the status quo - is central to the ethos of Max Fordham as a practice.

We’ve established the Max:R+I group to drive our research and development in the fields of environmental design, building systems, resource use and experimental architecture.

The group has a dedicated budget which allows us to undertake particularly novel work without burdening a Client with undue risk or cost. However, some of our best work has resulted from working in a research and development capacity in collaboration with our Clients. It's a strategy we are keen to continue.
