Our mission is to bring the value of good design to those with little or no access to it. For GA Collaborative, ALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO GOOD DESIGN.
At the core of this mission is a belief in the importance of research and craft in the design process and the value of sharing of that knowledge and experience with others.
We work with partners on projects that can have an intelligent and sustained impact on communities, and the individuals most in need of productive spaces and design foresight. To this end, we work with communities and organizations to find appropriate funding, develop design methodologies, and create strategies for sustainable growth.
We have experience working in a number of project models including, traditional client/contractor, community-based, and low-skilled training endeavors. We have worked with the UN to develop accessibility guidelines, corporate partners to ensure they are best meeting the needs of the local community, and individual families seeking accessible and responsible housing.
We have been involved with projects in Albania, Bangladesh, Burundi, Haiti, Rwanda, Sudan, and the U.S. that range in scale, program, and complexity with this mission in mind.
