Design Advocates

At the start of the pandemic, MKCA and a small group of independent architecture and design practices established Design Advocates, an organization dedicated to sharing resources and leveraging the creative energy and capabilities of the design sector through collaborative pro-bono work and advocacy. Design Advocates teams are at work on reopening and safety plans for restaurants, community groups, homeless shelters, public and independent schools, and performance venues in New York City, to name a few. We’re excited to share more as this initiative develops. To learn more, propose a project, or volunteer, please get in touch at
