We founded Slade Architecture in 2002, seeking to focus on architecture and design across different scales and program types. Our design approach is unique for each project but framed by a continued exploration of primary architectural concerns.

As architects and designers, we operate with intrinsic architectural interests: the relationship between the body and space, movement, scale, time, perception, materiality and its intersection with form. These form the basis of our continued architectural exploration.

Layered on this foundation, is an inventive investigation of the specific project context. Our broad definition of the project context considers any conditions affecting a specific project: program, sustainability, budget, operation, culture, site, technology, image/branding, etc.

Working at the intersection of these considerations, we create designs that are simultaneously functional and innovative.

We have completed a diverse range of international and domestic projects and our work has been recognized internationally with over 200 publications, exhibits and awards. In 2010 alone, we were recognized with an Award for Design Excellence in Public Architecture by the New York City Public Design Commission, a national AIA Small Project Award, a Best of the Year Awards from Interior Design Magazine, and multiple multiple Store-of-the-Year awards. Slade Architecture was also one of the Architectural League of New York’s “2010 Emerging Voices”.

Our work has been exhibited in the Venice Biennale, the National Building Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, The German Architecture Museum and many other galleries and institutions in Europe, Asia and the United States.

The awards, publications and exhibits are a welcome recognition. However, we strive to create work that speaks for itself.
