This course explores the theme of design at all scales, on an exclusive journey through the FXCollaborative offices that helps us understand how architectural design is in actual fact based on meticulous attention to detail, all the way from urban scale to interior furnishings. This video presents the experience and advice that have enabled these practices to expand and achieve their capacity for international design. Closely examining flagship past designs and future projects, the course provides valuable examples and the useful analysis tools the firms have evolved during their successful professional pathway, offering a forum for discussion and a significant study opportunity for all architects keen on learning more about design dynamics for tackling the creation of a building from start to finish, at all architectural scales.
These videos were created to provide new
operational tools and foster greater knowledge about the architectural design
- international architects’ operational experiences
- cross-references to international projects that require a design focus at multiple scales of intervention
- strategies and solutions for implementing
international projects that take into account both urban integration and a
focus on buildings’ interior details
- knowledge about materials and technical tips and tricks used in the case studies presented

About the Architects
We believe in the power of intelligence, intuition, and interconnection to design a better world.
- We build places that resonate and endure.
- We design with deep respect for our planet’s resources.
- We celebrate our clients’ unique cultures.
- We embrace diversity and promote social responsibility.
Our holistic approach integrates client aspirations, an urban sensibility, and a celebration of the craft of building. Our work ranges from the scale of individual buildings and interiors—office towers, multi‐family residences, cultural facilities, workplace, K‐12 and higher‐education institutions—to the city as a whole, addressing infrastructure and transportation. We advance design that stimulates and inspires; design that tells the story of place, of organizational aspiration, and of synergy between the natural and built realms. We derive aesthetic integrity and an enduring design character through continuous exploration of holistic function and essential components. We orchestrate a partnership with clients, stakeholders, consultants, and our staff, in order to galvanize the best resources of innovation and experience. We implement a transparent, thoughtful, and rigorous design process that promotes excellence and sustainability. We have built upon the knowledge of founder Bruce Fowle, whose early experience designing solar‐responsive, naturally‐ventilated homes led us to become a pioneer in the green building movement. Our projects represent the assimilation of years of knowledge and technical expertise building sustainable environments congruous with our clients’ values. Our work has a distinguished record of achieving performance metrics of sustainability and energy‐efficiency, including LEED, Enterprise Green Communities, ENERGY STAR, the 2030 Challenge, and other international rating systems. We continue to advance our sustainability objectives and expertise by focusing on Passive House and Net Zero Energy projects. Founded in 1978 in New York, our practice encompasses architecture, interior design, planning and urban design. We are headed by eight partners, with a staff of over 150 architects, designers, urban planners and allied professionals.
