At PLA we are always thinking about ways in which architecture can be of service to our clients, their communities, and society at large. PLA wants to contribute by going above and beyond narrowly defined professional obligations and domains.
Design is such a powerful tool that can be leveraged to help people and their communities. We recognize that pressing societal needs require fresh ideas and solutions. Every year, we tackle one or two projects that give back to communities in need. Please share with us your thoughts about these projects and others you are considering.
We view the opportunity to design environments for our clients as a gift
Designing things that fall outside the strict boundaries of architectural and urban design
Many projects begin with digging deep into important questions
For design to be resilient, it must be adaptable to new conditions and changes over time
