WOHA's strategy is to study the various desire lines on the site. Through negotiating the conflicting requirements of site, climate, technologies, developer, authorities, end-users and consultants, a diagram is produced that incorporates all these forces. This diagram is then used to develop the design at all levels and scales, creating an architectural language unique for the project. Architectural styles are avoided, as they limit the options available, and stifle exploration and creativity. However, precedents from all times and cultures are studied to gain experience and knowledge from the past. (to find out more..)
