SP2

Team

Our social architectural engagement is a team activity. Every project is implemented based on the professional knowledge and experience of a variety of people, as a result of long-term and comprehensive discussions, debates and justifications. Though every project has an assigned architect-in-charge, research-based design activities are also centered on the exchange of knowledge, experience and ideas, hence we consider the teamwork to be the guaranty of a productive and inspirational result, besides being an opportunity of spending nice time (although we love that part too).
