ID4A is young applied design research and architectural practice, founded in Los Angeles and led by principals Rania Hoteit and Malek Idriss since 2010.

ID4A has recently created a method to generate tractable systems for a range of architectural and industrial applications. Their patent pending design process, sort of architectural "hyper-prototyping" employs "a rigorous exchange between computational design, physical prototyping and additive manufacturing."

Their systems create pre-formed rigged structures and scaffolds using composite materials consist of polymers and composites. The 3D prints are pliable and transformative and can be easily manipulated. Using various algorithms and robotic system ID4A can control the 'charactistics' of materials and change the form of their prints.
