ISA is a design and research office engaged with projects in cities across the U.S. The firm has leveraged the opportunities and challenges of its home city of Philadelphia to drive a busy, innovative, and thought-leading practice that takes on the complex context of the post-industrial American city. ISA designs buildings, master plans, installations, and conversations that address changing climates, lifestyles, technologies, and urban environments.

ISA’s work has been featured in ARCHITECT, Architectural Record, DWELL, Metropolis, The Boston Globe, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The New York Times, and on NPR Radio. The office has won over two dozen local, regional, and national design citations, including an AIA Silver Medal, an AIA National Housing Award, an AIA COTE Top Ten Award, and USGBC LEED for Homes Project of the Year. ISA was named an Emerging Voice by the Architectural League of New York in 2015.
