This monograph explores the deep, inextricable relationship between the unique past and future potential of architecture that defines DXA's practice. The book presents 14 projects that embrace history as a critical influence: they use New York City as a laboratory to implement this unique approach, acknowledging contexts and constraints as constructive rather than restrictive. The work seeks to foster a dialogue between generations, shaping good design that brings value and a sense of belonging. Integral to its time and place, such architecture offers a distinctive identity, clarity, and timelessness to the urban fabric. The through line connecting the projects is DXA's interest in the transformative power of architecture. When well-conceived and expertly crafted, buildings can be more than the sum of their materials. They activate the city in a meaningful way and can change entire neighborhoods, serving as a catalyst for growth and vitality. Whether designing carefully considered ground-up buildings or adapting older buildings for new life, building on history is a fundamental base for contemporary practice. This belief has set DXA apart as a practice with an extensive portfolio of completed work in New York, as well as informs the studio's ongoing work in metropolitan areas throughout the United States.
