Herman Miller partnered with digital agency Hello Design to direct the interviews and build the site. Interviews with architects Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner of the eponymously named Marmol Radziner talk at length about the interaction between site, context and design for the Desert House, despite the fact that it was a pre-fab experiment.
