M/PAL : Creative Studio of Mandy Palasik is a design studio curating experiences at the intersection of art, architecture, and community. Built on the belief that design is not a linear process, the work manifests in various scales and formations ranging from architectural design services, art direction and curatorial assistance, to design and project management of public art installations. We believe that each project is a unique and collaborative work of art. We love making art!
