Get to Know WHY Architecture, a Team of Makers and Thinkers

Get to Know WHY Architecture, a Team of Makers and Thinkers – WHY Architecture is a team of interdisciplinary makers and thinkers, committed to creating lasting connections between people, culture, and place. Founded in 2004 by Kulapat Yantrasast, WHY is a multi-disciplinary design practice dedicated to creating connections between people, culture, and place. Our team is based in Los Angeles and New York City, and the practice is organized as five interdependent workshops: Buildings, Landscape, Museums, Objects, and Ideas. This unique cross-disciplinary structure enables us to work across multiple sectors and combine different forms of expertise, generating progressive solutions for projects ranging from museums to mixed-use developments, community art centers to private residences. In recent years, WHY has gained a reputation as a thought-leader in the fields of cultural and civic architecture, winning global competitions including the Ross Pavilion and West Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh, Scotland, and taking on major cultural landmark projects such as the Tchaikovsky Academic Opera and Ballet Theater in Perm, Russia.

Projects bt WHY Architecture

WHY’s design for the Speed Museum – Kentucky’s oldest and largest art institution – encompasses a thorough revitalization of the original 1927 neoclassical building, incorporating two new wings and a sculpture park. Located in relation to the University of Louisville’s Belknap campus and integrated within a network of parks and parkways designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the museum is ideally placed to reach out into the surrounding area. Our approach was inspired by this potential for openness and outreach, designing an intelligent and responsive structure that grows from its environment.

THE GALLERIES OF THE ARTS OF AFRICA, OCEANIA, AND THE AMERICAS AT THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART
WHY has been commissioned to undergo a complete conceptual and physical redesign of the galleries which house the museum’s collection of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and The Americas. The collection has more than doubled in size since the Rockefeller Wing was first inaugurated in the 1980s, and practices of art history and curation have radically changed. The new concept for the spaces reflects the need to convey the autonomy of the hundreds of distinct cultures represented in the galleries, and the design process is guided by close collaboration with curators and stakeholders.

THE TCHAIKOVSKY ACADEMIC OPERA & BALLET THEATER
The city of Perm is renowned for its rich cultural heritage, and WHY has been selected to design a new opera and ballet theater as part of a major urban regeneration campaign. Inspired by the region’s dramatic geology, the structure is imagined as a rock that rises from the geological outcrop above the valley. It’s also a highly porous form – instead of an enclosed bastion of high culture, the theater is wrapped in a glass curtain wall for maximum openness and transparency.

REES RIDGE STREET PARK IN TORONTO
WHY’s competition-winning design for a new waterfront park in Toronto was inspired by the Scarborough Bluffs – the iconic cliffs which rise above Lake Ontario. The site is currently dominated by the busy Gardner Expressway, and the new park will celebrate the drama and scale of the city’s infrastructure while opening new connections to the waterfront. Rather than resisting the industrial character of the site, the design heals the divide between the natural world and the built environment, creating a hybrid of monumental architectural forms and biodiverse natural planting.

THE INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN LOS ANGELES
As a non-collecting institution uninhibited by art world traditions, the ICA decided to rethink the traditional gallery model when they moved to a new building in the Downtown LA Arts District. Working with the ICA to rethink the relationship between art, visitors, and staff, WHY created a new gallery space that accommodates ambitious exhibitions, new media installations, and community-led social practice art.
