A memorable place is not just a beautiful one.
It’s a reflection of good design.

CDA works to make architecture easy to understand and bring to life by taking an inherently collaborative approach, sharing ideas early and often, and removing the mystery from the process. It’s a journey towards form driven by function, where client and architect are kept in sync, with the shared goal of creating memorable spaces – that’s the goal of architecture. That’s the promise of CDA.
