Rael San Fratello, established in 2002 by partners Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello, is an internationally recognized award-winning firm whose focus on emerging technologies and ecological design lies at the intersection of architecture, art, culture, and the environment. Their work has been published in the New York Times, MARK, Domus, Metropolis Magazine, PRAXIS, Thresholds, Log and their writings featured in numerous books and journals. In the past 10 years, Rael San Fratello has won, been selected as a finalist, placed or recognized in 9 high-profile international competitions including WPA 2,0, Sukkah City, Life at the Speed of Rail, SECCA Home/House and Descours.
Much of the work of Rael San Fratello attempts to expose the latent potential found in some of societies most pressing issues, particularly those not necessarily defined by geographical location, such as immigration, homelessness, and the urgency to address the state of our country’s infrastructure 70 years after the creation of The Works Progress Administration. We consider this approach to be a robust response to a global ecology and media-driven and networked society that is increasingly interconnected in profoundly complex ways.
