Cyrus Froning
I was born and raised on a small island in Washington
state known for its strong artistic community. In
school I practiced pottery and illustration and worked
in construction before studying spatial design at
Artcenter College of Design. These pursuits gave me
a deep appreciation for the human touch in design.
Design gave me the opportunity to praise the natural
and irregular and appreciate the smaller details that
enrich our lives.

Spatial Design allows me to study the unique
bisection of the haptic and kinesthetic experiences.
I design with a focus on the human scale and an
interest in residential, retail, and renovations. As
designers, we can imagine an architecture that
invites more intimate interactions with sustainability
and sensuality.

02 Hyphae 


Hyphae is a dining, retail, and urban gardening experience, in partnership with the Los Angeles mycological society and Fungi Valley, with the goal of revitalizing the dead spaces in our citys and our bodys with mushrooms

The spaces is guided by the tree concepts, reset, rejuvinate, and reinhabite. Reset is about simplicity and basic forms and patterns, revitalize is about energizing the space and the body with light and texture, and re-inhabit is about discovering new patterns of experiencing space and bringing life into said dead spaces

04 Eminent Habitat

This project was an experiment in informal architecture.

Driven by my desire to have more creative freedom over my apartment and inspired by the self-built architecture of favelas and informal settlements, this system of construction and fabrication aims to give the freedom of architecture to the average person.

Imagining a future where urban communities are not built from the top-down by large institutions but bottom-up by the people who live in those communities
