Description


This book celebrates over 20 years of BonstraHaresign Architects' community-focused practice.

It documents the growth and success attributable to the firm's philosophy and methodological approach. Many beautiful images and descriptive text show that Bill's and David's design aspirations and cooperative work styles, shared by their talented, associate partners John Edwards and Jack Devilbiss and the studio teams, have produced not only award-winning architecture, but also architecture benefitting each project's surroundings.

BonstraHaresign Architects serves a variety of populations and communities: urban and suburban, commercial and residential, civic and cultural. Projects range from affordable and market-rate housing to historic restoration, renovation and adaptive reuse. Typologically diverse projects are the essence of BonstraHaresign Architects' architectural work and community-building efforts. And desirable community enhancement resulting from their projects is visible in Washington, DC, urban neighborhoods as well as in eastern region.

BonstraHaresign Architects' does not exist to implement the aesthetic tastes and wishes of a soloist "starchitect" or prima donna designer with a signature style, yet design artistry is an essential goal of the firm. This complements Bill's and David's fundamental commitment to create contextually modernist architecture as an agent of positive change beyond each project's site boundaries.
