Architecture for Dialogue explores the relationship between people and their habitat through research, design and futurism.

AfD participates in projects across citymaking, experience design and public engagement — often working in intersections. Browse projects ︎︎︎

We work with government bodies, cultural organisations and institutions to create prototypes, pilots and demonstrative projects that tackle emerging challenges.

Did we mention?
AfD was selected as one of the top 20 emerging design practices for the annual DesignXDesign Exhibition of 2021. Woot!




We are a small team taking on diverse roles to create and complete projects in the public domain.
