Overview

Spiegel Aihara Workshop (SAW) is a San Francisco-based architectural practice founded by Dan Spiegel and Megumi Aihara. SAW is a transdisciplinary design firm, operating at the nexus of architecture, landscape, and urban design—which allows them to work across scales (from the tactile object to the city) and timelines (from the immediate to the ecological) at the onset of a project. They believe in the transformative power of good design, in the inextricable relationship between building and context, and in the vital role the built environment plays in the development of community.
