Architecture is a territory between art and science that aim to express ideas and concepts through physical constructions. It is not limited to designing buildings, but rather represents the technique and logic of human thought.

Architecture is a powerful tool of expression that has the ability to shape how people interact with the built environment and, consequently, influence the quality of life of communities.

The creative process begins with identifying the project goals, understanding the requirements of clients and partners, so that architects can develop innovative, user-centered solutions.

Nowadays, the use of methodologies such as Design Thinking and Metadesign, which are based on collaborative and multidisciplinary processes, are essential to achieve the complexity of our societies.

Furthermore, digital technology is increasingly important in architecture. The BIM (Building Information Modeling) platform is one of the main tools used by architects to create detailed three-dimensional models of projects.

These models can simulate all stages of construction, which helps to minimize errors and optimize the use of resources. More advanced models allow for the simulation of not only formal variables, but also the creation of prototypes of complex systems such as neighborhoods and cities.

The creativity of architects is one of the tools to create innovative and effective solutions that must work in line with the aspirations and needs of the users of the spaces we design. In this way, the involvement and collaborative participation of diverse work groups involving our professionals and mainly open clients can always lead us to new thresholds of knowledge.
Architecture is not limited to following established rules and patterns, but rather thinking outside the box to find solutions that meet the specific needs of each project.

Architecture at the urban scale plays an important role in creating public spaces and urban planning.

Various factors must be considered, such as the climate, local laws and regulations, the terrain, and the intended use of the building to accommodate the social dynamics of the present and the future.

Society constantly acts and reacts to the exchange of social and economic values, leading us to adapt or reconstruct the world around us.

This scale is very fascinating to us because its dynamics allow for faster and more realistic responses to where our world is heading.
Each building constructed is a record of our time, making clear the reason it was designed and built, and representing the values, ideas, and technologies of the time in which it was erected.

The public scale of an architectural work can also be considered a social manifestation. The public aspect of buildings and their touchpoints with the city, besides expressing ideas, tells us how we relate as a society.

Architecture, in this way, records the passage of humanity on Earth, the interaction between its peers, its relationship with natural environments, always leaving the trace of our footsteps, but also indicating paths we can follow.

Our buildings will be the legacy we leave to future generations, filled with knowledge, techniques, and technologies that can somehow propel those who come after us.
That is why it is important to take sustainability and social responsibility into account in our projects.

Architecture can and should be a force for greater collective good, helping to improve people’s quality of life and seeking ways to improve our relationship with the environment.

Our professional discipline of architecture and urban planning is multifaceted and complex, encompassing technical and emotional skills that require ingenuity, creativity, planning, as well as concern for the well-being of people and the environment.

It is a powerful tool of expression, framing how we live, work, and interact with the world around us, and surely always leading us to reevaluate everything we have done as a species, and allowing us to imagine what realities we can construct.

For us at LDA, it makes no sense to work if it is not to leave the world better than the one we received.

Architecture is our soul, our essence, and above all our reason for existence. We make architecture thinking of recording our passage in this time, as a record and trace of our humanity.

When we began to understand ourselves as beings endowed with this knowledge and able to act for the benefit of others, we made these truths the commitment to creatively flourish the humanity that inhabits us, and it imposed on us the commitment to continue on this path, that of making a better world.
