Z-A is a New York based Studio for Architectural Innovation, which is dedicated to exposing the unexpected in the mundane.
Z-A explores Adaptive Materials, Structures and Infrastructures that can adjust and respond to changing needs, uses, users and identities of a project.
Z-A believes that a sustainable project is first and foremost a project that can live longer. A flexible design approach equips the project with the ability to stay relevant over time.
Z-A’s designs are a deliberate move away from stylistic or formal uniformity, expressing a genuine interest in the mundane, the found or given condition, which is clearly different from one project to the other. Moreover it is meant to display that starting with the obvious, doesn’t lead to an obvious result.
Z-A gained national and international visibility through numerous awards and publications such as; The New York Times, CNN, Fox TV, Channel 13, Time Magazine, New York Magazine, Dezeen, Huffington Post, Fast Company, Architectural Record, Frame, Wall Paper, Metropolis, We-Ar, SPA-DE, Mark, Time Out, Architect’s Newspaper, Haaretz and Marie Claire.
Z-A was exhibited and acknowledged by various institutions such as; The Venice Biennale, Perspecta Lisbon, Compotec Massa-Carrara, Municipal Art Society of NY, Columbia University, the Van Alen Institute, the Ramat-Gan Museum, the Fulbright foundation and the William Kinne Fellowship.
