minding the built environment


ADAPTIVE OPERATIONS is focused on cultural production and deft manipulation of our shared built environment through architecture, art, design, and education.

Adaptive Operations was founded in 2013 by Charlie Vinz, whose varied experiences include years spent with Chicago architecture firms as a project architect and project manager, developing and teaching youth design/build apprenticeship programs, collaborating and consulting with artists on architectural scale projects, designing and building exclusively from the building industry waste stream, creating conceptual art projects, and commercial and residential design projects.
