Some architects reduce design to an exercise in combining shapes, forms and materials, with little regard for the people who inhabit the buildings.

The problem with that approach is when a client inherits a new building that strives to make a statement rather than solve problems that relate to its setting and support the activities housed within that space. Even worse are buildings that are the sum of obsolete, formulatic equations:

When DAMEC's designers truly reach the heart of the matter and address a client's core problems, we create dramatic spaces that work well while appealing to the people who use them. Our architecture flows directly from ideas about how a building should look. Instead of looking for oppurtunities to express ourselves artistically, we measure a project's success by asking, "does it really help?"
