WAU (Watchorn Architecture & Urbanism) is a full-service architecture and urban design practice based in New York City. The firm was established in response to the widening gap that exists between successful design firms and executive firms with a view to spanning both areas of practice. With prior experience working with some of the world's most established offices in both spheres, WAU has experience in providing innovative design solutions whilst meeting budget constraints and rigorous construction schedules.
WAU’s design approach is driven by a curiosity for new organizational typologies and aesthetic experiences that offer new ways of living, working, and interacting with one another. WAU’s interests are not defined by a particular project typology, but by the potential to create environments with cultural resonance. Frequently expanding the role of the architect, WAU’s approach spans between strategic thinking and material experimentation from the city to the artifact.
