ADNBA was established in 2003 in Bucharest, by Andrei Șerbescu and Adrian Untaru, later joined by Bogdan Brădățeanu and Esenghiul Abdul. The work of our practice is characterized by our search for the right balance between experiment and experience in the complex and delicate landscape of contemporary life. 

The challenges brought by the different scales, the diverse urban and cultural contexts, and the various building types we have worked with so far, have all enriched our experience and understanding of the multi-sided nature of our profession. Our practice has achieved critical acclaim for both our built projects and our competitions entries, many of which have been awarded by national and international juries.

 

With every project, we aspire for a wider and wiser understanding of the city and its evolution. This includes themes that form the essential background for our thoughts, hopes, and doubts. Building upon this background, what interests us most is the specific situation each project and place brings, together with its fragile ties to the people, the neighborhoods, and their stories.

 

AGD is an architecture office founded in 1994, in Suceava, Romania, by Constantin Gorcea and his three partners: Constantin Stroescu, Ioan-Doinel Spineanu, Carmen-Mariana Zorin.

AGD approached a wide range of programs, from socio-cultural buildings to single-family homes, from the urban planning phase to interior design and furniture design, both for public and private investors.

Through our projects, we try to create simple, natural gestures of architecture integrated in the urban, natural, social-economic environment and in the cultural context.

We would define what we want to promote as cultural ecology (in the original sense of the term ecology, from the Greek oikos = house, household; logos = science, study).

Our projects have been presented at exhibitions, won awards, and published in architectural magazines and books.

Our office has proven its ability to work in collaboration with numerous Romanian and foreign specialists and to integrate the most up-to-date technologies.

AGD has tried to create a professional working environment for architects and their collaborators of other specialties and strives for a high level of quality in the final product.

They belong to the real world, to the possible and to the current challenges. This does not stop them at all to try every time to rise the bar at any occasion. For those works built and in use, they are grateful to the clients, collaborators and contractors. For those only imagined and designed they have a parallel world of possibilities where they keep them all, some still having a chance. Both may be considered as pursuit for the better, while perfection does not exist. Experience and young energy, computers and their riders, architects, planners and engineers, long days and short nights, always considering their clients and end users. There are no secrets for their outputs except stubbornness for doing every time better than before. Step into their world which becomes yours by this.

EAA Emre Arolat Architecture was founded in May 2004 by Emre Arolat and Gonca Pasolar in Istanbul, as the continuation of Emre Arolat’s architectural practice which he started at his parents’ office, Arolat Architects in 1987. The practice continues its design studies at the offices in New York, London, and Istanbul with a team of more than 50 people, working on projects at various scales. In the architectural design process at EAA main decisions consider the interpretation of the context in its widest sense rather than specific visual correspondences.

The architectural significance of EAA was supported by many awards, the most notable ones being the Aga Khan Award in 2010 for Ipekyol Textile Factory and RIBA Award for International Excellence in 2018 for Sancaklar Mosque. Emre Arolat also has a presence in the academic world with lectures, jury contributions, and studio tutorage in schools of architecture: Yale School of Architecture, Delft Berlage Institute, NYC Pratt Institute, Ankara METU, Ahmedabad CEPT.
