Overview

This publication charts the multidisciplinary practice of Brooklyn-based architecture and design firm BAAO. By delving into a cross section of projects from acclaimed single- and multi-family residencies in Brooklyn, to institutional and retail projects like the Maple Street School and the Body Factory, to propositions like Chromatic Energy Landscape that fuse engineered technologies with ecological processes like photosynthesis and algae production, this eponymous publication highlights the diversity and ingenuity of BAAO’s practice.

Flowing through a thematic structure that is porous and intersectional, BAAO is not intended as a round-up of independent projects but instead presents itself as a selected outcome from a larger cluster of ongoing material and spatial research. This publication situates BAAO’s work in the context of topical discussions including ecology and the landscape, multigenerational architecture and design, and the role of fabrication technologies in producing new relationships to space and place.

Emblematic of a new generation of architects and designers that work across typologies and scales to answer the stakes of architecture and design within the twenty-first century, BAAO navigates topics of public space and circulation, technology, sustainability, and materiality. The result is a seamless web of built work and propositions that escape easy categorization, and are as much a lesson in practice as in theory.

Authors

Founded in 2006 and led by its principal Alexandra Barker, BAAO works across sectors to probe the division between public and private space. At the heart of the practice is a long-term investigation into how materials, structures, and systems inform, reshape, and blur this distinction. BAAO’s principal, Alexandra Barker, is currently an associate professor and assistant chair of the MArch program at the Graduate Architecture and Urban Design Department (GAUD) in the School of Architecture at Pratt Institute, New York, where she has taught since 2001.
