Architecture Project was set up in May 1991 and consists of a multi-national team of professionals that has been involved in a vast range of projects. The office has achieved considerable success in design competitions, both local and international. It is a flexible organisation that is capable of addressing the specific design criteria of an individual project. Essentially, AP is a laboratory of design, where ideas are allowed to flourish and where solutions evolve in a dynamic environment.
Past experience has proved that developing a network of specialists is essential to any project. AP has given special attention throughout the last few years to the creation of a network of experienced partners, both local and international, that are capable of providing specialist advice. They form an integral part of the design team and assist in the implementation of much of our work. All partners and in-house associates will participate in all the design workshops. Specialist contributors will be brought in according to an established programme prepared by the design team in the initial stages. AP operates within a fully computerised office environment and is constantly adopting technological advancements in the field, including of course AutoCAD and presentation techniques.
The role of AP in the dissemination project will be of support in the tasks of post occupancy evaluation and co-organization and hosting of major dissemination activities in Malta, such as symposia and workshops.
