Thom Mayne founded Morphosis Architects in 1972. Mayne was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2005. Morphosis works on multiple scales from residential architecture to urban planning. Mayne described his style to the New York Times in 2005 after he won the Pritzker Prize: "The multiplicity of ideas is what I'm interested in. The hybrid in our society—where there is no singular idea of what is beautiful." This is an idea echoed in the name of his firm.
