Architecture of Art + Conscience
Today we have an opportunity to shape our future. We can better configure our material world by recognizing that ethically valid built environments must provide for all of us. Committed to designing sustainable architecture of art + conscience, Louise Braverman FAIA, founded her highly focused, mission-driven firm, Louise Braverman Architect, in 1991. The challenge to merge aesthetic excellence with civic inclusion drives all work. Recent projects include Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso, an art museum in Boticas, Portugal, that promotes public participation with art; Village Health Works Staff Housing, an off-the-grid dormitory in the post-genocide village of Kigutu, Burundi, and the Derfner Judaica Museum, an art museum in Riverdale, New York, that facilitates intergenerational dialogue. Together they reveal the power of architecture to positively affect the way in which we live.
