Works Progress Architecture (W.PA) has over 18 years of experience working in transitioning neighborhoods and communities: amplifying growth and creating dense, livable mixed-use environments.
W.PA advocates for the importance of provocative, modern designs that complement the existing urban fabric within industrial districts and enhance the quality of the local community.
W.PA works with the belief that the infill and restoration of city fabric is a way to create truly sustainable cities. With our extensive experience working in industrial-district private development, we equip clients with concise, provocative, and financially feasible solutions.
W.PA draws from the expertise and enthusiasm of a group of passionate, talented, and conscientious architects. With studios in Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles, California our staff of 25 members collaborates to find responsive, nimble and clever solutions. We practice architecture with a method that works outside the limits of a traditional service firm. W.PA is 100% woman owned and a majority woman staffed studio.
