Architecture for Dialogue is an experimental practice exploring the future of architecture and habitat.

The studio specialises in research, strategy and design to build pilot projects, prototypes, demonstrative exhibits. The only way forward is to experiment, test and iterate. No silver bullet solutions.

In a short span of time, our young studio has participated in projects across citymaking, futurism, experience design and public engagement — often working in intersections. Browse projects ︎︎︎

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