rhiza A+D has forged a practice that has its foundations set firmly and equally in the realms of architecture and public art. Our studio reflects this stance clearly, one part shop and one part drawing space. Our members are equally suited to making as they are to planning and managing. We have extensive experience guiding artistic expression through the rigors of public discourse and the constraints of public agencies. For us, design solutions are site specific and are drawn from the layers and activities of a site itself. Our design process is based on the belief that more heads are better than fewer and that working collaboratively yields richer, more durable, and more deeply-rooted art and architecture.
