Our practice responds to the socio-economic, the cultural, the political, the environmental, and the physical factors that inform the conditions of the craft in the solutions we produce. Our work aspires to go beyond containing the problems as projects are not informed by the conditions – projects are the conditions.
In recognizing, comprehending, and managing the factors that make a project and interacting with the people that we design for, we effectively and empathically design in the best interest of those who need our services. It is our belief that through this initiative of understanding, interaction, and response, our work lives beyond the hand-off between our firm and our clients to spur positive growth and facilitate the development of the population it supports.
Every year, the entire RAI team travels to a different destination for our annual retreat. It’s like a three-day marathon spent exploring iconic design, meeting local designers, sampling local cuisine, and lots of team building and bonding. Wondering where the retreat has taken us over the years?

Every Friday, members of Republic Architecture gather at 4PM to discuss local and world events, recent celebrity sightings, debate design decisions, compete in head-to-head trivia matches, or just take a break and catch up with each other. We learn about each other’s interests, what others have been working on behind the scenes, and discuss the bigger picture.
Watch this space for more information on Fridays @ 4.
