Green & happy design is the core of our practice. With over 20 years of experience in architecture and urban planning, our team delivers award-winning buildings and cities. Design is a collaborative process to discover the greener and happier ways to live, work and play. As our name Avoid Obvious Architects suggests, we find unique solutions to bring green smiles to everyone. We work very closely with NGO and government to provide sustainable designs on a non-profit basis.
Working with us is like working with entertainers and innovators. Together with our clients, we will find and unleash the greatest potential of design. We add value to the most common situation by combining art, health, context, build-ability, fundraising, branding, story telling, and science.
Our team cares about people, history, and the environment. The AOA’s passion and design philosophy is not only spreading within the professional world, we are also volunteering to teach local children. In 15 years, Architecture for Children have taught over 6,000 students about collaborative and sustainable designs. In 2016, Vicky Chan lectured in front of 500 global mayors in New Cities Summit in Seoul. Our work has also been featured next to the White House in the US. With both top-down and bottom-up believers in our cities, our future is looking bright.
In 2019, we are helping 6 NGOs to provide 6 community projects to help people and the environment.
