Gair Williamson Architects was founded in 2002 and has since been focused on urban densification and a concern for the city as a repository of cultural memory. They believe densification in inner city neighborhoods leads to deeper social interaction and civic accountability. Their work strives to unite the often opposing interests of the community and developer, and the conflicting priorities of the art of architecture and the economics of the marketplace. Of particular interest to the firm are critical explorations into the larger social and cultural issues pertaining to the architecture of affordable housing and a reconsideration of the 21st century workplace.
