The practice has gained international renown with work in Europe, North America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, distinguished by its insightful cultural engagement and the transformative civic qualities of its buildings. Projects range in scale from private houses, exhibition design and temporary pavilions to major arts centres, civic buildings and masterplans.
Completed buildings include two community libraries in Washington DC, the Moscow School of Management, the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver and two Idea Stores in London.
