In early 2015, Clear Studios was founded during a three month architectural artist residency in Guatemala City. It was during this time the studio designed and constructed our first Jewel Box project. This project acts as a philosophical anchor for the approach to architecture and design.  The studio views the potential to experience spatial development beyond personal basic senses and within communities.

Clear Studios is comprised of three individuals: Samuel Sutcliffe, Mary Frisbee, and Steffi Min. The trio is educated in fields of both Architecture and Industrial Design. This guides the studios' approach to a wide variety of angles, skills and scales.
