WORKac with James Ewing

New York City, United States

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 five-hundred-thousand-square-foot Conference Center for the African Union. WORKac recently completed a residential conversion of a historic New York cast-iron building. They will soon complete a public library in Queens and a facade for a parking garage in Miami.

James Ewing is an artist engaged in illustrating architecture, landscapes, and scale models. Common themes explored are the history of Modernism and the quest for utopia.
