The firm was named one of Metropolis magazine’s 2013 “Game Changers” for its Women’s Opportunity Center in Kayonza, Rwanda, a sustainably designed and constructed village for vocational training and community development. Designed in collaboration with humanitarian organization Women for Women International, the project earned the 2011 World Architecture Festival Award "Best Future Educational Project.” Such change-making architecture begins with catalytic partnerships. Many of our projects have benefited from a rich design dialogue with nonprofit and public partners, as well as our network of consultants. To leverage the power of our partnerships and collaborations, we’ve developed several initiatives, including Big Future Group, which taps the collective imagination of designers, engineers, and builders to bring sustainable solutions to the developing world’s immediate needs, and BRICK, which builds upon our work in Rwanda to improve low-cost construction techniques in Africa and elsewhere. A research initiative and a green-renovation endeavor round out our efforts to reimagine the scope of architectural practice.
Our work has been recognized by a range of publications and Web sites, including Architectural Record, GOOD, Earthworks Magazine, and Architizer.
For each project, we conceptualize and execute a design that harmonizes with the natural and constructed environments, as well as realize cost-effective, environmentally conscious systems for lighting, heating, plumbing, and water resources.
