Recorded: March 5, 2008

WORK Architecture Company (WORKac) was founded in 2003 by Amale Andraos and Dan Wood. Based in New York City, WORKac pursues projects at all scales, from residential and commercial interiors to private residences, housing, institutional buildings, and urban planning projects both in New York and internationally. The firm’s name, WORK, captures its design philosophy, “represent[ing] the rigorous analysis and relentless testing of concepts to find the specific solution.” Here, Amale Andraos and Dan Wood present Public Farm 1, their plan for the 2008 MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program, which will bring an Urban Farm to Queens, NY.

The Architectural League created the annual Emerging Voices lecture series in 1982 to recognize and encourage architects who are beginning to achieve prominence in the profession. The series focuses primarily on built work, at a variety of scales, and is structured to reflect the diversity of contemporary practice–geographically, stylistically, and ideologically.
