Exploring ODA’s human-centric architectural approach

Human-Centric Architecture

“ODA: Office of Design and Architecture” is the latest release from esteemed architectural firm ODA, and it shines a light on their dedication to human-centric design principles. Esteemed architect Paul Goldberger kicks off the book with an introduction that praises ODA’s innovative urban design approach.

From cover to cover, you’ll find a showcase of ODA’s inventive projects, each one a reflection of their commitment to sustainable, creative architecture. Designers talk openly about their processes along with challenges they’ve faced.

Goldberger’s introduction praises the company’s gutsy design style and lauds the way they’ve addressed public space and accessibility issues. His words position ODA as pioneers, reshaping how we perceive architecture’s place in society.

Eran Chen, founder and executive director of ODA, deviates from the traditional modernist ‘form follows function’ principle. In his view, ‘forms should follow experiences or function.’ His innovative approach is showcased in ODA’s breadth of projects, from redesigning public spaces, crafting multifunctional structures, to revolutionizing urban landscapes.

In “ODA: Office of Design and Architecture,” you’ll explore an array of ODA’s successful design projects, moving from individual units up to entire neighbourhoods.

But the book offers more than a showcase of stunning structures; it delves deeply into ODA’s multidisciplinary approach. This approach, merging architecture, interior design, and landscape development, is used to construct resilient communities. The narrative underscores how integrated design can reshape urban lives, advocating for visually pleasing, practical designs that promote harmonious urban living.

Goldberger’s praise for the book and ODA’s innovative solutions permeates it. Every building, he argues, is part of a broader urban landscape, and ODA recognizes this, ensuring their work not only caters to visual aesthetics but also contributes functionally to city fabrics.

Released on March 20, 2024, “ODA: Office of Design and Architecture” provides a hefty dose of insight for architecture enthusiasts, community builders, and industry professionals. Apart from detailed blueprints, gorgeous photos, sketches, and explanatory narratives, it serves as a comprehensive resource on the pivotal role design plays in creating sustainable urban environments.
