|Founded in 2008, AUX Office (pron. â€˜Oxâ€™) is a Los Angeles based architecture studio. The English word auxiliary comes from the Latin word auxiliarius, meaning to aid or to help. In French, AUX (pron. â€˜Ohâ€™) means with; on your stereo itâ€™s the jack that runs the newest and future gadgets. The firmâ€™s name lies within these multiple definitions and in a sense of partnered utility.
||Brian Wickersham leads AUX Architecture. He is dedicated to the thorough investigation of functionality, spatial qualities, and materiality in the built environment.
