Design Agency

DSGN (Design Agency) is a research and design studio that works with civil society groups to comprehensively address issues that negatively affect marginal and immigrant communities. They initiate community engagement processes, research efforts, and propose actions, architectures and designs at various scales — from pamphlets to buildings to landscapes.

Their work is rooted in critical activism — a methodology that uses activism and critical discourse to open up possibilities for change in the processes by which architecture and cities are made. Critical activism also postulates that no product is ever final — designs, buildings, ecologies and urban systems demand broad and holistic community-based processes that can change over time with both constants and variables.
