At theOtherDada, we are architects with a purpose and strategists with a mission. Going beyond traditional architecture, we employ a holistic and biomimetic design approach with NATURE and PEOPLE at its core. It is architecture that is socially and environmentally engaged. We are also Miyawaki forest makers, empowering local communities to reclaim urban landfills by planting dense native forest to effectively mitigate the impacts of climate change. We carefully explore the natural ecosystems of sites in order to devise new, innovative and sustainable living habitats – fueled by the power of biomimicry: emulating nature to devise solutions for human challenges. We implement regenerative strategies that improve our environment and serve as catalysts for social change. Our practice strives to create a significant positive impact, ambitiously moving the world from EGO to ECO. We are firmly committed to the UN Decade of Action, engaged on rewilding the city and reclaiming public space by planting native forests in urban landfills.
