NAC Architecture is an award-winning design firm, with over 170 professionals and a track record spanning more than half a century. We are thought leaders, yet our legacy of listening and learning remains constant. The NACLab, NAC Architecture’s blog, features thoughts and lessons related to current issues. Authored by our established and emerging thought leaders, the purpose of the blog is to invite conversation and constructive reflection on the cultural and material complexities of design. We believe this dialogue ultimately informs stronger design solutions to our clients’ and society’s most challenging problems. Visit us at
