WPA is an award winning and internationally published architecture firm noted for its innovative design and planning services. Founded in 1997, the firm is comprised of four professionals and is located in downtown Aspen, Colorado. Projects include the design of new buildings, renovations and reuse of existing structures, interiors, and planning and feasibility analysis.
WPA takes keen interest in positioning the practice of architecture within the terrain of history, theory and contemporary discourse through research, authorship and teaching. The investigation of three core issues supports the design process in all WPA projects; exceeding expectations of the client, broadly acknowledging circumstances created by context and creating agreement with natural processes over time.
These principals have given rise to over thirty design awards, including two national design competitions and publication of the firm’s work in ArchDaily, Architectural Record, the Wall Street Journal, an interview on National Public Radio, and numerous professional publications.
