Metacity: "engaging with what exists and what is to become in a city."

THE FIRM

 

Albonico Sack, originally established 1986, is built on the solid experience of the principals. In 2003 the practice became a close corporation and currently consists of a dynamic core team of architects and urban designers.

 

Albonico Sack Metacity, Architects and Urban Designers (ASM), is based in Newtown in the inner city of Johannesburg. Our diverse and multi-disciplinary studio environment provides a solid platform and flexible framework for innovation and creative input.   We are actively involved in both public and private projects in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal, other African countries and further a field.

 

APPROACH

 

We believe in a flexible and responsive approach to development, an approach that enables the formulation of integrated development frameworks that foster the creation of well-balanced and sustainable environments.

 

MISSION

 

To be able to engage in the process of city building, without illusions, but with the conviction that architecture and responsive urbanism can make a contribution to the development of better places for the individual and the collective.

 

COMMITMENT TO TRANSFORMATION

 

The principals have a longstanding commitment to social upliftment through the practice and product of their profession and this has informed the strategic focus of the firm.
