Our Process

OPerA stands for 'OPERATIVE PRACTICE ARCHITECTURE.' Operative Practice is a design methodology wherein form is generated through the creation of systems, with a primary emphasis on how the system operates or performs to suit the needs of a project. The following case studies demonstrate our design approach:
CASE 1: Guggenheim Helsinki

Our design process as applied to the competition entry for the museum.

CASE 2: 598 Myrtle Ave

Our design strategy for the configuration of a condominium development.

CASE 3: Folded Frame House

Our design process as applied to a country house.
