Coalesce Design

Members: Brian Sandford and Seantel Trombly

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

Brian Sandford and Seantel Trombly are both recent Master of Architecture Graduates from Wentworth Institute of Technology who individually focused their theses around studying the ways in which the built environment affects our will and ability to interact with those around us. Their focus was around design at the installation scale to allow for a more immediate testing on the 1:1 experience of human and surface.  

Post their April 2018 graduation, the two of them continue to push their research by working together to construct and study their work within a complex public realm. Brian and Seantel hope to influence the greater architectural discipline by getting users and their communities to be more invested in the spaces they create and how they inhabit them together.

Brian is an emerging artist and designer interested in the intersections between art and architecture, and the ways those disciplines can influence the quality and activity of urban public realms. His work is primarily focused on a combination of research and built installations, inviting people to see those around them in new and complex ways. In this time of intensive public and political debate, he believes in the power behind a simple shift in perspective.
