By merging our design work with science and technology, we are actively finding for ways to

better serve our world and operate in more sustainable and ecological ways.

More than ever, our design workflow is multi-faceted, and our process of exploration allows us to

question the norm in an architectural project.

The construction industry has traditionally been slow to adapt to change, while advances in digital design

and the delivery of buildings have expanded the territory of the architect.

Workflows are a kind of hidden phenomenon in completed buildings. Buildings along, especially

complex ones, cannot convey the collaborative activities and found opportunity our design teams

have developed in the service of construction execution.

We utilize technologically-infused delivery methods that allow an attention to detail while

advancing our design solutions from concept to completion.


GRO Architects is an award-winning architectural practice that privileges the integration of emerging technologies to respond to client needs, project complexity, and collaboration between disciplines. The firm is headquartered in Lower Manhattan, and opened a second office in Shanghai in 2018. As architects we are intimately engaged in providing creative and sustainable design solutions for a broad array of project types and budgets. The virtual design and construction tools we use to realize our design proposals also allow us to bring to each project a more efficient and optimized construction process. Additionally, these tools have allowed us to operate in a highly efficient manner with a staff of four licensed architects and eight project designers. Through the conceptualization of how new digital protocols augment, challenge, and change the authorial process of design we create novel opportunities for our practice.
