Best wishes for the new year from the DCA family.


This year will see the opening of The Bryant tower – a hotel and residential building in New York, the first phase of the Carmen Würth Forum – an event and chamber music hall in southern Germany, and on the other side of the globe the Inagawa Reien chapel project, set on a steep mountainside in central Japan.


Work will continue on numerous projects including Kunsthaus Zurich, Nobel Center in Stockholm, Amorepacific HQ in Seoul, the James Simon entrance building and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, the Royal Academy of Arts and the conversion of the former US embassy in London. In China, work is expected to start on several new projects including the Zhejiang Medicine Headquarters and Shanghai Expo tower.


Further flagship stores with Valentino and Bally will complete and a first collaboration with SSENSE, the global online retailer, will see their inaugural store open in Montreal.


In addition to the built work, a major exhibition in Italy and a series of publications reflecting on the work of the practice are currently being developed.
