Earlier this week, as part of its “Most Innovative Companies 2013,” Fast Company crowned “The World’s 10 Most Innovative Companies in Architecture.” Among them were the likes of Perkins+Will, well-known for its robust Social Responsibility Initiative (SRI), building on its pledge through The 1% pro bono program of Public Architecture.
We were especially drawn to the profile of Mazzanti Arquitectos, “For revitalizing the slums of Bogota in Colombia by turning crime-ridden public spaces into delightful community centers.” As explained by Fast Company, “The Cubierta Cazucá canopy in Bogota transformed an unused basketball court into a shaded sports court and public plaza for the neighborhood.” Meanwhile, the complete Top 10 includes: 1. Foster + Partners; 2. Snohetta; 3. Adjaye Associates; 4. Amateur Architecture Studio; 5. Perkins + Will; 6. Herzog & de Meuron; 7. Populous; 8. Arup; 9. Mazzanti Arquitectos; and 10. Lake|Flato.
