Firm DescriptionMONTOUTE is an interdisciplinary collaborative brought together by an interest in the spaces between things as much as the objects that consume the space within our environments. We are less concerned about formal strategies but rather are concerned with mapping the patterns of human existence, interaction and desires. It is the overlay of these realities that help to create strategies that are the basis of the work
