ODA is a New York based architecture and design firm. In the nine years since their inception, they have designed 45 buildings in NYC, encompassing a broad range of scales and typologies.
Jane Jacobs’ dream of life on the intimate scale of Greenwich Village’s streets is fading as population density increases and forces us to build vertically. ODA is in search of the best practices to develop a new paradigm that infects vertical living with the human and social qualities of the low scale housing formulas. They believe that our quality of life need not be compromised for the privilege of being in NYC.
