Collaborating with people, institutions, and places that seek a considered process in the definition of space, ABRUZZO BODZIAK is part of a new generation of architecture practice that thrives on diverse built work. Creating quality, curated experiences, ABA is committed to design that has lasting impact.
Engaged in discourse as well as building, Emily Abruzzo and Gerald Bodziak bring intellectual rigor and creativity into the practice, while extensive experience in construction and making informs each project's approach. With work that includes urban greenhouses, spatial installations, houses apartments and townhouses, retail concepts, furnishings, and re-tooled working environments, ABA serves its clients with a relentlessly exploratory working process.
