As creators of 21st century spaces for creative and engaged living, wHY explores Ideas, Buildings, Grounds and Objects that embody our mission to integrate culture into our everyday. We help institutions find and develop their identity through the work we do with them, using design as tool to make meaningful impacts. We pull from the broader context to inform the work and make sure to leave space for evolution. Founded in 2004 and led by Creative Director Kulapat Yantrasast, wHY is a team of 40 creative designers with offices in LA, NYC and Louisville. In less than ten years, we have built the first new LEED Gold art museum in the world; expanded with the international art market by designing outposts for prominent galleries; explored the intersection of climate, landscape and architecture via an arts education facility for one of the nation’s top colleges; remixed and re-presented an important art collections for one of Americas top institutions; and are currently envisioning a new master plan for an historic park where the 1893 World’s Fair took place.
