So I figured I would find something on SHoP since my last post involved their practice. Here they are with AD talking about the firm. Their office is based on a collaboration between all of the architects in the office...apparently there are no job titles in the office either. I really appreciate their multi-disciplinary approach to architecture.
Best quote from the video...."The worst thing that architecture can be is the manufacturing of the image of a building."
