We are team players. Successful collaboration with clients and expert partners is at the heart of every project we work on. We are curious and cooperative and view every collaboration as a learning opportunity.
MKCA worked with artist Sarah Oppenheimer and engineers at Buro Happold to devise the geometry, structure, and architectural integration of the site specific artwork, C-010106.
Working in collaboration with Local Office Landscape Architecture and conservation botanists at SUNY, we developed a conservation-minded planting palette for our Nano-Biome Building Skin that preserves endangered native New York State ferns that are disappearing from the wild due to overdevelopment and climate change.
Working with manufacturer Boston Valley Terra Cotta, we developed a highly sculptural terra cotta rainscreen facade system with an undulating texture – an exceptionally crafted, artisan product that installs simply and inexpensively on a conventional rain screen track system.
We are constantly building great teams to deliver high quality design work that is well conceived and well executed, and we draw upon a broad range of expertise – both ours, and that of our network – to best tackle each project.
