This has shown businesses and workers what is – and what isn’t – possible to accomplish remotely.

At the same time, those tasks that are difficult or impossible to do without a dedicated workplace have been put into sharp...

Last year, when Los Angeles Magazine approached our office asking for innovative ideas for affordable or permanent supportive housing, our team jumped at the chance, as did a number of the city's top architectural firms. Prior to the pandemic, the housing crisis was already top-of-mind and we are delighted to have been able to contribute our ideas to this incredibly worthy cause, and to see the excellent contributions of our peers.  Check out the full story...

This year, architectural education across the world, and especially in Africa, has been deeply affected by the coronavirus. In response, ArchiAfrika is reviving its online lecture series to bring content and professional engagement to African architectural students, which our Founder and Design Director Clive Wilkinson was invited to kick off last week!   Clive virtually sat down with guest host Frances Anderton, who also hosts and produces KCRW’s DnA: Design and Architecture, to discuss how growing up...

We are thrilled to announce that the West Los Angeles Residence took home the Merit Award in the Single-Family Residential (Medium) category at the AIA|LA Residential Architecture Awards (RAAs) on Thursday, June 17th!   Notes from the jury: “ Fearless with color and materials while managing to mix architectural drama and — on the top floor — the coziness of a wood cabin. | Clear exploration of dichotomies, top versus bottom, enclosed versus open. | Expressed with careful...

With California’s shelter-in-place orders continuing, big tech companies are telling their employees that they can keep working remotely. But what does this mean for the future of the creative office–currently defined by open plans with internal streets, environments to stimulate disruptive ideas, opportunities for serendipitous encounters–and the future of the workplace post-pandemic?   DnA (Design and Architecture), a weekly radio show broadcast on KCRW NPR Station in Los Angeles and hosted by Frances Anderton, turned to our...

In the last decade, floor plans, utilization ratios, amenity packages, real estate calculations, and corporate policy and programs have all seen huge changes. However, by disrupting business-as-usual so fundamentally, the global pandemic has brought to the fore many opportunities that previously were on the fringes. Informed by everything from remote working to public health concerns, architects and designers must be prepared to imagine workplaces of a kind they have never had to before.   Watch Clive–along with...

In the context of COVID-19, the term 'essential' has gone beyond defining indispensable activities and labor during a time of crisis and entered the realm of Orwellian doublespeak. The pandemic has only accelerated a much larger conversation being led by market forces, the development and accessibility of technology, and other mega-trends about what is essential–and by definition, non-essential–about work in cities.   Watch Clive–along with fellow panelists Jamira Burley, Head of Youth Engagement & Skills, Global Business...
