on the work of Architecture Is Fun.
Design makes a difference.
Architecture Is Fun listens and engages with you to develop places, spaces and experiences that are relevant for you. We like good ideas and having fun.
For twenty years, people have come to Architecture Is Fun for collaboration, creativity, participation and passion. We are an incubator for architects, educators, artists, and designers who reach out to neighborhoods and organizations who value engaging, playful and meaningful experiences in public space. At a grassroots level, we help communities thrive and shift paradigms by designing places and spaces that instill pride and bring empirical value. On a global scale, this work is published and recognized as a model and benchmark.
Recently we have been acknowledged by the Museum of Modern Art in New York (take a look at their Inside/Out blog), received the HUE Award (for the exceptional use of color in architecture) and helped to open the Young At Art Museum in Davie, Florida (it received 25,000 visitors in its opening weeks).
We look forward to speaking with you soon.
