Practice Lab

The Practice Lab is a space of learning by doing where we conduct experiments to prototype architecture(s) of planetary well-being in practice. Working directly with practitioners, we lead research-based experiments to discover new projects, shape new initiatives, and help develop new models for philanthropy in architecture.

Experiments

Research-based experiments allow us to define relevant areas of focus, reveal opportunities for action, test informed hypotheses and share original learnings in order to grow new networks for collaboration and scale the impact of our work.

Practice-Based Funding

Despite the massive ecological footprint of the industry and huge transformative potential of the discipline, professional architectural practices are disproportionately overlooked & underfunded by traditional funding models. Practice-Based Funding is an experiment to work with emerging architecture studios to propose and realize self-initiated and community-led projects directly exemplifying the realization of architecture(s) of planetary well-being in practice, rooted in their own local social and ecological contexts.
