WAA (we architech anonymous) is a collaborative design team. The name of the practice was coined from a desire for the architect to sit comfortably within the background without the dogma / brand which so often can soften to become baggage and conflict with the interests of the client. We strive not to impose; we hope rather to be flexible liberators for future inhabitants of the buildings we design.
