Design Vision
Since its formation in 1996, DBOX has
established relationships with many of
the world’s foremost property developers
and architects, maintaining studios in
London, Taipei, Miami and New York.
In October 2012, DBOX won an
Emmy Award for its work developing
the computer graphics and branding for
the six part documentary series
Rebuilding Ground Zero
, created for the
Discovery and Science channels with
Executive Producers Steven Spielberg
and Danny Forster. The Emmy crowned
nearly a decade of work by Matthew
and DBOX on the World Trade Center
site, for which they created visuals
for the winning master plan, as well
as still images and animations for key
benchmarks throughout its construction.
Prior to co-founding DBOX, Matthew
studied architecture at Cornell University
(B. Arch. ’94) and earned a master’s
degree in architecture from Princeton (M.
Arch ‘96). Matthew has taught at Parsons
School of Design, The School of Visual
Arts, The Graduate School at Princeton
University and Cornell University School
of Architecture, Art and Planning. In
2006, he was named as one of the world’s
top creatives under 40 by
magazine. He left the Dragon in 1980,
winning the first Art Scholarship to
Marlborough College.
As a student at Cornell in the 1990s,
Matthew Bannister
(OD 1980) and two friends became intrigued with the
idea of applying three-dimensional computer imaging to
the world of architecture and design – then dominated
primarily by static watercolour visuals. The trio went
on to form DBOX, now an international branding
and creative agency that specialises in the fields of
architecture, art, hospitality and culture.
