Reza Nik Studio
an experimental architecture practice


A weekly piece reflecting on current thoughts, theories, research and sometimes creative writing.


The structure we had been building and calling the “mobile activator” or the “activator” is complete and handed off to the community in Parkdale. Now the fun part of seeing it in use begins while learning about improvements to the design and concept. I’m very grateful for the past 3 weeks.

Today we discussed its name once again, and the official name will most likely be chosen by the community, but for now and for my records, I believe “mobilizer” will be it (thanks Dana).
