Curiosity drives invention. At PHASE3 we believe in innovating across all aspects of design. We are always on the hunt for better ways to communicate, better ways to design, and better ways to build.
Start every project with a question.
Imagination enables the unseen to be seen. We founded PHASE3 to foster imagination and help others materialize their ideas. It propels us to imagine something better and to harmonise those ideas into design.
Use imagination to unlock potential.
Collaborative teams are the future of design. PHASE3 is built on trust and an ability to draw on one another’s expertise to come up with more ingenious solutions. It means we communicate; we listen, we share our ideas and we take others on board.
Projects are made better when they are made together.
London-based, American designer Tyen Masten is Founding Director of PHASE3. With over 25 years as a practitioner, Tyen setup PHASE3 in 2012 as an alternative practice within the field, and one that could inspire others, clients and the architects themselves to make generous and meaningful work. From printed matter, small-scale developments and hotels, to museums and master plans, Tyen is recognised for his innovative use of digital technology to create thoughtful and beautiful projects. Driven by the idea that uniqueness and difference are gifts, Tyen’s work at PHASE3 aims to help others believe in their own voices to open up new possibilities and lasting change within the built environment.
Originally from the cornfields of Illinois, Tyen grew up in California. He holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Colorado and a Master of Architecture from the University of California, Los Angeles.
After studying with Zaha Hadid at the Universität für Angewandte Künste in Vienna,Tyen relocated to London to join Hadid’s studio where he successfully led the design on a variety of projects in the Middle East and the UK (2004–12). He has also worked in Los Angeles with Greg Lynn and spent four years working on high-end residential projects in New York.
Known for his ability to move between the creative, practical and the academic, Tyen taught within the famed unit system of the Architectural Association (2005-17) where he led research on subculture and counterculture,and how both can inform new programmatic approaches and building forms. Investigating new material systems, digitisation and big-picture thinking, his work remains grounded in future building, legacy and whole systems.
