 Thom Mayne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He is principal of Morphosis, a renowned architectural office located in Santa Monica, California.
Morphosis’s design philosophy arises from an interest in producing work with a meaning that can be understood by absorbing the culture for which it was made.
The word “metamorphosis” (from which the name Morphosis is derived) means a “change in form or transformation.” For Morphosis this reflects a design process intuitively embedded within an increasingly groundless modern society that is exemplified by the shifting landscape of Los Angeles (the firm’s home).

The word "metamorphosis" is defined as "a change in form, undergoing a transformation." For Morphosis, one of the most influential American architecture firms, this word is the source, not only of its name, but also of its philosophy and practice.
As organic as such edifices may appear, however, their conception was made possible through the use of techniques at the vanguard of computer-generated schematics.
In 2003, Morphosis was awarded a Progressive Architecture Award for the Palenque at Centro JVC, as well as three National AIA Awards for Lutece, the Hypo-Alpe-Adria Center, and Diamond Ranch High School.

Elsewhere on the campus, key entrances are treated as gateways, and the addition by Morphosis and Teeple Architects to the campus continues this tradition in a bold and modern way.
