Architecture expresses the cultural values of people and their communities; integrates its design with the natural and man-made landscapes in a profound way to reflect its culture with dignity. It is the philosophy of Edward Fitzgerald / Architects to create architecture that assimilates culture into the physical landscape, creating public and private places that integrate human interaction with work, recreation and contemplation.
