As part of Audax's culture, the firm has researched and created a design philosophy called Human Architecture, which provides the robust foundation to all of their design work. The approach incorporates the best elements of traditional architecture and marries them with a modern aesthetic. Human Architecture stems out of the belief that many of the best aspects of traditional architecture were lost during the modern period, and from the recognition that modern design is a popular aesthetic within our culture today. By looking at the past through the lens of Modernism, Audax is able to bring the tactile and human-scaled elements that were lost with Modernism, back into contemporary design. The results of using this approach are buildings and interior spaces that appeal to those who admire the warmth and detailing of traditional architecture but also appreciate modern design. As an ongoing exploration of the philosophical framework, Audax is leading The Human Architecture Project which consists of formal case studies to demonstrate the theory and explore new ideas and designs that relate to city building.
