We design and build collaborative, community-engaged architecture and urban space including laneways, community gardens, public spaces and pavilions.
SITUATE | DESIGN | BUILD is a non-institutional, hands-on and situated approach to architecture and building pedagogy. We operate between professional architectural/urban design practice and education to create community-engaged projects. Our projects are pro bono, with donated materials and are built alongside students from multiple institutions and disciplines. The communities benefit by an improvement to their spaces and students learn about materials and building through their involvement. These projects are prototypes meant to be implemented by the community at various scales. By using a SITUATE | DESIGN | BUILD methodology we start by researching a situation including consulting with the community, then we engage in an iterative design process, and lastly we work alongisde professional builders to construct the project.
