Archi­tec­ture that rever­ber­ates with a local context.


Our engage­ment in Archi­tec­tur­al cul­ture is rep­re­sent­ed by the projects we’ve deliv­ered and a com­mit­ment to a phi­los­o­phy which under­pins the work. The projects reflect a world view. Since 1985, there have been many pub­li­ca­tions about our work and our prac­tice. There has also been our com­men­tary on issues con­fronting design­ers of build­ings, res­i­dents of cities or inhab­i­tants of a frag­ile plan­et. This com­men­tary has been cen­tral to the evo­lu­tion of the practice.
