SIFT is a collaborative architecture practice led by Adam Fure. Working at a range of scales—objects, installations, and speculative buildings—their work infuses architecture with base aesthetics, raw materiality, and intensive atmospheres that challenge the aesthetic and experiential norms of contemporary culture.
Adam Fure is an architectural designer and educator teaching at the University of Michigan's Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. He holds degrees in architecture from the University of Michigan and the University of California, Los Angeles where he graduated with distinction and was awarded the Alpha Rho Chi medal. His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, the Beijing Biennale, the A+D Gallery in Los Angeles, the AA in London, and the Grand Rapids Museum of Art. He is the recipient of numerous awards including a residency fellowship at the Akademie Schloss Solitude, the Carlin Glucksman Endowed Fellowship in Architecture, the Jeffrey "Skip" Hintz Memorial Fellowship in Architecture, and two first prize entries in the recent ACSA Archive #4 competition.
