LEA ARCHITECTURE is a New York-based architecture office. We focus on thoughtful and innovative architecture at all scales. Operating on the scale of objects, buildings and ideas, we practice architecture as a process of shaping spatial and social programs.
TEAM PROJECTS is a collaborative platform for architectural experimentation and design innovation. We are interested in beauty and strangeness, permanence and ephemerality, logistics and imagination. Through an open process of rigorous investigation, we work at multiple scales on objects, installations, buildings, and environments
