Nasadil / Duba studio
“We teach architectural design which is contextual, not radical. One of the studio objectives is responsibility to context in its broadest sense. We see it as framework and ultimate source of limits and inspirations. When we build in a physical environment, no matter if urban or natural, there's always context to work with. We believe that good architecture must contribute to context rather than harm it and that contextual limits are positive contributors to design process. We favour evolution to revolution, both in architecture and studio work. Hence the only way to evolve is through inventive design process with strong emphasis on site sensitive concepts.”
Pavel Nasadil has been the Chair of Architecture and Urban Design Studio since 2015.

FAM Architects specialise in private residential projects, public buildings and transportation hubs with complex topology and master planning in the Czech Republic, UK and abroad. They often collaborate on public projects as part of large international design teams.
