Summary of Expertise Architecture Charles Matz's approach towards the architectural design process is technologically innovative and style-neutral. A deliberate strategy set into motion, at the outset of a project, to nurture the development of an appropriate vehicle and material expression of a building's unique narrative. The resultant shape, spatial organization and structure strikes a resonant chord with the aspirations of individual or organization commissioning the work. Rather than focusing on the stylistic constraints of current fashion, basic design methods are used within the overarching philosophical, historic and practical requirements of the project to promote the building's longevity. Interior Design In context of constructed architecture, the realization of the enclosed, inner layers of a building are considered for their textural, tonal, chromatic and material qualities. These specific areas of focus define the success of the human experience within the environment. The building gives to its visitor, at the level of its interior makeup and scale, a cobbled story of light, sound, feel and space. Most of all it renders a coherent, premeditated, artistic composition of mood. The amalgam of localized sensory elements are central to the building's unfolding identity. The essence of the practice of Interior Design is the orchestration of these elements at a human rather than monumental scale. Graphic Design and Fine Arts Disciplines are individualized by their specific mediums and the mastery of the languages those mediums are spoken in. Sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and design share threads of a common vocabulary. Artists then choose how to express ideas by deliberately selecting formats within their discipline. These individualized methods of expression rely on craft for their execution. Enter CMA as Craftsperson: The focus is on proficiency of execution. The Studio works with numerous strands of art production and the aesthetics that enhance the experience a project.These include: Graphics, Product, Exhibition, Print, Signage,Wayfinding, Environmental, Identity Design as well as Fine Art projects. Production, Motion and Media Performance,music and motion picture in whatever form, digital or live, areprescribed narrative structures. CMA has participated as Producer,Director, Art Director and Production Designer in major media brandsthrough the composition of spectacle. Subtlety, nuance, credibility and true expertise inmaterial properties and methods form the backbone of the fabrication, andproduction execution consulting practice tothe Architecture, Fine Arts, Design, Graphics and Commercial Construction fields.With decades of proven project outcomes, the focus has been on theprocess of creative authorship and material realization by crafting anddesign-detailing high profile commissions. Transforming an initial idea into a constructed, built object or environment,requires clarity and direct communication between participants withinthe process. Master fabrication knowledge is the unifier.Through a cross-disciplinary dialogue, the required spatial and visualeffects, forms and materials, and final overall objectives take flight.The organization of process and construction unfolds against a backdropof historical precedent.
