You+Pea have a shared interest in architecture as a creative platform which draws inspiration from all aspects of popular culture - whether considered ‘high’ or ‘low’. We enjoy architecture that celebrates the graphic and the immediate, and demands attention through a vibrant conversation with its surroundings.
