Studio Gang is a leading architecture practice whose design work addresses buildings, landscapes and cities. Founded by Jeanne Gang in 1997, the office has grown to include 35 full-time staff collaborating on national and international projects.
The studio acts as a lab for testing ideas on every scale, from cities to material properties. This sensibility is demonstrated by projects such as the Marble Curtain and SOS Community Center, which visibly engage with the distinct natures of marble and concrete, respectively, and the Aqua Tower in Chicago, which reconsiders the tall building as a site-specific structure. With a process that begins with research and exploration, the studio has produced a growing body of work that responds to its specific place and purpose.
Studio Gang has received national and international recognition for its innovative and sustainable designs, and was most recently honored with an award of High Commendation for the SOS Community Center at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona.
RODE Architects is a full-service collaborative design firm led by two LEED Accredited principals and owners, Eric J. Robinson and Kevin S. Deabler. Located in the South End of Boston and founded in 2005, RODE’s flexible design process is enriched by an inherent, tight collaboration with clients. RODE provides a far-reaching range of design services, from site master planning and feasibility surveys to project management and innovative architectural solutions. We are nimble, young and resourceful, and proficient in navigating regulatory approvals in fast changing, inner city neighborhoods.
One of RODE’s core competencies is an exceptionally productive working relationship with the BRA, ISD, Health Department, and other authorities. Landmark firm projects like the Bornstein and Pearl Food Production Center, consisting of a 36,000 square foot multi-tenanted food incubator for startup businesses, involved a complex permitting process with the City to allow for the reinvention of an existing industrial building. The Bornstein & Pearl project is the core commercial element within a larger plan to redevelop 4+ acres of vacant land, and bring more than $70 million of investment in affordable housing, commercial development, job creation, job training and youth arts programming to an underserved inner city neighborhood.
RODE’s client collaborations include higher education private institutions, developers, business owners, and private individuals. We have a strong record of effectively collaborating with challenging stakeholder groups to push projects through to completion. RODE is the professional fermentation of their unique skills and capabilities.

The work of Studio Puisto Architects builds on the ecological, social and financial aspects of sustainability – combined with esthetics and functionality. Studio Puisto specializes in natural, sustainable choices of material and energy sources. Studio Puisto Architects is located in Helsinki, Finland.
The name of the firm expresses an interest we have in exploring the boundaries that architecture operates within - the larger boundless environment suggested by the CITY, and the intense focused craftsmanship of the object, the DESK. The focus of the STUDIO, architecture, exists in between these scales. We choose to be diverse in project types and scales. We believe the ideas, issues, and even construction techniques in these different project types inform each other resulting in work that is better designed and better built.

We design buildings, renovate space, build furniture and formulate brands for small businesses. Our approach on a project is to discover its 'essence' by telling a story. The story often begins with concepts that manifest and transform into built form. The concepts unfold through careful study of client needs, client rituals, site analysis, context, scale, orientation, views, light, ventilation and material. An important part of this research includes referencing historic examples of similar project types overlaid with today's sustainable mindset. Everything is considered part of the whole and collectively combines to reveal the spirit of each project.
From concept through construction, we take the time to ensure the client has a full understanding of the process from start to finish. We collaborate with building departments, sustainability consultants, engineers, contractors, artists and craftsmen whose individual skills are essential to create the final product. We understand the challenges of design and construction and seize the opportunity to work together as a team to deliver clean, timeless solutions. Since this behind-the-scenes collaboration is rarely seen, we use social media as a platform to highlight the stages of the process. We see this collaborative effort as another important component in revealing the project's story. This story gives meaning and value to the project, to our clients, to the design profession and to the greater community.
