Work Architecture Company
156 Ludlow Street 3rd Floor
New York, USA
Amale Andraos and Dan Wood founded the architecture firm WORKac in 2003 and have achieved international recognition for projects that reinvent the relationship between urban and natural environments. They are committed to sustainability and go beyond its technical requirements by thinking more broadly about the relationship between buildings and nature. The firm is known for embracing reinvention and collaboration across disciplines.
They strive to develop intelligent and shared infrastructures and a more careful integration between architecture, landscape, and ecological systems.
WORKac recently completed the first two Edible Schoolyards in Brooklyn and Harlem and re-imagined the future of work for Wieden+Kennedy in Manhattan.
In Libreville, Gabon, the firm is building a new Conference Center for the African Union. WORKac recently completed a residential conversion of a historic New York cast-iron building and a public library in Queens.
Current Projects include a redesign of the Rhode Island School of Design’s student center and a facade for a parking garage in Miami’s Design District.
Together they hold the University of Toronto’s Frank Gehry International Visiting Chair in Architectural Design. Amale Andraos is also dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
