FXFOWLE has defined a practice that encompasses architecture, interiors, planning and urban development. The basis of the firm’s work is a collective, rigorous exploration of fit and form, driven by ideas about function, place, the form-making process and the role of design in human settlement. Inspired by urbanism, sustainability and technology, the firm’s portfolio ranges from the scale of an individual building–office towers, multi-family residences, cultural facilities, K-12 and higher education institutions–to the city as a whole, addressing infrastructure and transportation. FXFOWLE is committed to breaking new ground with demonstration projects, and advancing the principles of sustainable architecture. The firm sets and meets high standards of sustainable and energy efficient performance, and strives to go beyond LEED to achieve goals such as net-zero energy, Passivhaus, and tenets of the Living Building Challenge.
