Leers Weinzapfel Associates wants to challenge themselves with more challenges, focusing on the complexity of producing good quality architecture, urban design and infrastructures, always thinking with a design clarity basis, elegance, and refinement. Coveted wants to show you the projects and the competence of LWA.
Having four founding members, and the same being Andrea Leers, Jane Weinzapfel, Josiah Stevenson and Tom Chung, teamwork and availability to share ideas is guaranteed. The company attaches incalculable value to the fact that it can count on multiple different visions, skills and dedication to help shaping its core values. “Long time colleagues Winnifred Stopps, Associate Principal, and James E. Vogel, Senior Associate lend depth and perspective to our collaboration. Associates Kevin Bell, Jeffrey Fishbein, Irene Kang, Ashley Rao, and Ben Wilcox contribute specific areas of expertise to benefit the firm as a whole.”
Leers Weinzapfel Associates builds relationships by connecting their clients, partner designers, engineers, etc. because it is an important part of the design process, being in the firm’s interest to explore a philosophy of architecture that does not remain alone but its dynamism is multiple (people to place, building to landscape, past to future).
“Often, we suggest visiting similar facilities together to share observations about what works and what doesn’t. Because people process information in different ways, we present ideas using various modes and media during the design process, including three-dimensional physical and digital models at a range of scales from site to detail, as well as digital animations to explore the experience of spaces.”
The secret for their success is the passion for the art of building. Exploring the latest technologies without forgetting the traditional craft and technique, Leers Weinzapfel Associates pretend to create projects that engage spirit and senses, producing beauty through the manipulation of light, material and detail. “For each project, we research new products and fresh applications for old materials. We physically model assemblies at full scale, and we digitally model daylight effects for different configurations of space and enclosure.”
The company’s main goal is to increase the human experience.
