MAST is a danish maritime architecture studio based in copenhagen. the studio often explores floating building systems which are highly flexible and adaptable to rising sea levels. MAST was founded in 2021 by australian architect marshall blecher and danish maritime designer and architect magnus maarbjerg with a vision to improve the relationship between the city and the sea.
the practice is rooted in a scandinavian design tradition and works with all typologies and scales, from small finely crafted installations to piers and parklands to development plans for new waterfront districts. the combined office and workshop is situated in the boat building yards in southern copenhagen where it works closely with a team of boatbuilders and naval engineers to realize many of its local projects, to make and test prototypes, and to gather inspiration.
