KAPOK is a transdisciplinary design practice, established by architects Claire Karsenty and Robert Slinger, dealing with questions of identity and orientation in the contemporary city. We operate within the fields of architecture, urban design and public art, our projects enabling people to re-read their built environment, provoking new, previously unimagined ways of using the spaces around them.
