nyc architects is a Singapore-based practice that offers design and project management services that relate to the built environment. For the practice the built environment is the most permanent and obvious cultural product in a social milieu; thus the process of designing and its products are important parts of our material and epistemic cultures. While rapid urbanism, new innovations, and advancement in technologies have brought about a range of contemporary, social-economic, cultural, and environmental issues that are fast evolving, the practice’s vision is to adopt a critical approach and produce well-crafted designs that address well to these developments affecting the discourse of architectural practice. Buildings and their users have a reciprocal relationship, our corporeal experiences within physical spaces have affective effects on us; we aspire to create designs that enrich our senses.
