Future Method Studio is a collaborative and interdisciplinary practice working across architecture, installation and speculative projects. The focus of the studio is on material culture and creative methodologies that are impact and process driven. We work with a variety of clients to design residential, health and civic buildings, and we design immersive & performative works, exhibitions and installations in collaboration with institutions and artists for a variety of spaces, scales and budgets.

Future Method Studio is Joel Spring and Genevieve Zoe Murray.
Joel Sherwood-Spring, a Wiradjuri man raised between Redfern and Alice Springs, is a Sydney based Masters of Architecture student and interdisciplinary artist currently focussing on the contested narratives of Sydney’s and Australia’s urban culture and indigenous history in the face of ongoing colonisation. Joel began working with Future Method in 2017.
Genevieve Zoe Murray, before establishing Future Method Studio in 2013, worked with Ric Leplastrier, Glenn Murcutt, Mcdonald Wright Architects (London), and Sydney based Hungerford+Edmunds, and Rod Simpson. Genevieve has written for Assemble Papers, Architecture AU, and the Sydney Morning Herald, and teaches and lectures between UTS and Sydney University on a sessional basis.
The studio’s work has been nominated for the Conde Naste Design Innovation Award 2010 and shortlisted for the Designboom competition Design For Death 2013.
