ABOUT

Architecture for Dialogue is a research and design practice pushing the boundaries of architecture across physical and digital mediums.


We specialize in creating transformative spaces that inspire thought and instigate conversations around the future of living.

In a short span of time, our young studio has propagated a research-backed spatial design approach across domains of street design, food systems, water security, waste management and air pollution. Explore projects →


AfD was selected as one of the top 20 emerging design practices for the annual DesignXDesign Exhibition of 2021.

Recent Collaborators ︎︎︎



Diverse projects require diverse team setups. We work closely within a network of passionate individuals — with unique motivations and capabilities. At AfD, we come together to collaborate on challenging briefs, learn from each other in the process and over all else, have fun!

If you would like to learn more about the practice or initiate a collaboration, we would be up for a chat.


Approach

Our projects propagate an iterative process to architecture where we start small, learn from experiments and explorations, and scale responsively to achieve desired results.



Public dialogue is a core component of our design — serving as input as well as intended outcome. Transformation of cities and habitat is wholesome when people voice their needs and ideas — bridging the gap between what is needed and what is created.

Our Values


︎

PUSHING BOUNDARIES

Breaking conventions of where architecture is applied and how. We do not hesitate to question briefs to dive deep into project intent and requirements.

︎

OPEN TO AMBIGUITY

We welcome challenging briefs that have no straight answers. We find ourselves having the most fun in open explorations driven by process and serendipity.

︎

SELF-INITIATED

Self-initiated inquiries help us explore our interests, gain insights and develop new skills and partnerships — that transform into larger projects.
