IMG_5088We use architecture as a tool for healing, education and community building. Alt Architecture + Research Associates LLC brings together the expertise of architects, behavioral health researchers and project stakeholders. Through our collaborative process of workshops and focus groups we examine the issues and opportunities of each design problem in its unique socioeconomic context while simultaneously recognizing human universals incorporated into the architectural design.
