...in a few words
Baca Architects designs places where water is the public realm. By harnessing the principles of the Long Term Initiative for Flood Risk Environments [LifE] and combining these with a deep instinct for placemaking and pioneering integrity, we enable clients to capitalise on swathes of redundant waterfront, to transform their towns and cities into business and leisure destinations and create modern places to live which are sustainable, zero carbon and mitigate climate change. Our master plans make space for water. Rather than looking to a future of ever-escalating flood defences, our award-winning schemes are based on aquatic frameworks, the harmonisation of blue and green landscapes and proven engineering technology. Our vision knows no bounds in creating cultural and leisure legacies for the future, in reinventing historical assets and in delivering new communities which thrive in, take meaning from and, indeed give back to, the rivers, seas and lakes of our world.
