The diversity of their output is exemplified by their two most recent A+Awards-recognized projects: The ‘UN’ Opportunity Pavilion in Dubai, a floating canopy that brings to life the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and Trazas de Pontevedra, a landscape intervention that reinterprets ancient Galician-Roman settlements.

Public Vote Winner, 10th Annual A+Awards, Private Garden

Xiaoyunlu 8, MAHA Residential Park by Ballistic Architecture Machine (BAM), Beijing, China | Public Vote Winner, 10th Annual A+Awards, Private Garden

As a locally grown design firm with offices Beijing and Shanghai, Ballistic Architecture Machine (BAM) is somewhat of an anomaly. Founded by foreigners in 2007, the design practice rose to prominence as it navigated the changing contemporary Chinese metropolis and rising technological innovations, and the firm became well versed in the ins and outs of breakneck urbanization. These experiences were formative and instilled the firm with the conviction that as societal views of nature are changing, landscape architecture must imagine new ways of inspiring healthy relationships with the environment.

Public Vote Winner, 10th Annual A+Awards, Showrooms

Ghost Hangar by John Grable Architects, TX, United States | Public Vote Winner, 10th Annual A+Awards, Showrooms

John Grable Architects was founded in 2005 by the eponymous designer who sought to combine his love of craft with an appreciation of technology. Fas forward to the present, and this approach has proved fruitful: the high-performance design firm’s trademark is creating buildings with expressive architectural details that celebrate building materials and the construction trades. While the buildings that John Grable and his team of skilled staff produce may recall the sound building practices of the past, they are achieved by integrating complex building and information management systems and software. This is combined with an approach to the construction process as a continuous dialogue with contractors and the trades that allows the firm continuously modify their designs.

FH Office by TA-CHA Design, Bangkok, Thailand | Jury Vote Winner, 10th Annual A+Awards, Mixed Use (S <25,000 sq ft)

Bangkok-based TA-CHA Studio is self-described as “just ordinary tiny firm doing better thing for our client and society;” however, we’d argue that, to the contrary, they are an extraordinary tiny studio. Time and again, TA-CHA’s projects present innovative way of incorporating passive design approaches: a highly thought-out approach to airflow is at their heart of all their work. Likewise, re-used or locally grown wood and recyclable metal are mainstays in their material palette, while a human-centered approach to floor plan thinks about how space can motivate inhabitants to form healthier behaviors.
