Architects involved with charity Make It Right:
For BNIM Architects, sustainability is a way of life; design is an act of optimism and hope for the future. With these philosophies in mind, BNIM continues to build on 37 years of history, design innovation, and environmental stewardship. BNIM is a pioneer in the design of healthy buildings and communities, having helped to develop the USGBC LEED® rating system and Living Building standards for restorative design.
We are committed to an inclusive design process, one which values close collaboration with all stakeholders, from end users, to local agencies to neighborhood groups. We excel at bringing all “voices” together, harnessing the energy and ideas of many with an integrated approach that empowers the design process and results in a solution that exceeds client and community expectations.
Our design solutions are inspirational, functional, and healthy for users and for the environment. With a holistic approach to issues of place, function, context and community, BNIM Architects strives to create architecture that not only performs technologically but also stirs the imagination of its users, while reconnecting them experientially to the living world.
KieranTimberlake Associates LLP has focused on solving complex design issues innovatively for over twenty years. We develop leading edge architecture that responds to the ideas, needs, and circumstances of its inhabitants. To further our understanding of architecture and develop new ways to see, design and make the products around us, we place research and development at the core of our practice. We employ collective rather than singular intelligence in the making of architecture. Our process is holistic involving many layers of information and participants at one time. Our art is the discovery of external and internal logics derived from this exploration.
An award-winning and internationally recognized architecture firm, KieranTimberlake Associates is noted for its research, innovation and inventive design. Founded in Philadelphia in 1984 by Stephen Kieran, FAIA, and James Timberlake, FAIA, the firm is comprised of fifty-four professionals. Recent projects include Loblolly House in Taylors Island Maryland, the new Sculpture Building at Yale University, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC and the West Campus Residential Initiative at Cornell University.
Morphosis was founded in 1972 in Los Angeles as an interdisciplinary and collective practice involved in experimental design and rigorous research. Today, the firm consists of a group of more than 40 professionals, who remain committed to the practice of architecture as a collaborative enterprise. Located in Chelsea, Morphosis New York represents an extension of the studio under a single umbrella of leadership, design philosophy and operations.
Named after the Greek term, morphosis, meaning to form or be in formation, Morphosis is a dynamic and evolving practice that responds to the shifting and advancing social, cultural, political and technological conditions of modern life. A critical practice where creative output engages contemporary society and culture through architectural design and education, Morphosis is a process driven firm that seeks new and different design challenges and has resisted becoming specialized in any particular building type. With projects worldwide, the firm’s work ranges in scale from residential, institutional, and civic buildings to large urban planning projects.
With founder Thom Mayne serving as design director, Morphosis typically generates its ideas through brain-storming sessions, in which designers question all prior assumptions about a project and intensively test and refine different avenues toward a solution. Morphosis works closely with its clients to help them define the ethical and functional goals of the project, then translates those goals into a design that satisfies the unique requirements and aesthetic opportunities of the program, site and context. The ultimate goal is to produce an architecture that surprises and inspires—a critical architecture that contributes to the conversation about how we live today.
Over the past 30 years, Morphosis has received 25 Progressive Architecture awards, 70 American Institute of Architects (AIA) awards and numerous other honors.
