Squint's Story

Squint/Opera was started in 2001 by four young friends who wanted to change the way big ideas about cities were expressed. They wanted to remove the jargon and make these ideas fun.
 
Embedded in the studio of renowned British architect and artist, Will Alsop, we started out exploring the boundaries of architecture and design.

Back then, the latest tech involved mini DV cameras, editing from our laptops and creating digital animation in After Effects. But our short-format architectural films caught the eye of the industry and began to change the way people thought about buildings and spaces.

20 years on, we have expanded our focus, but we're still committed to communicating those big ideas and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. And, we still believe that these big ideas should be playful, exciting and easy to understand.
