For the first Architecture at Chicago Somewhere Else event of 2022, we visit Emanuel Admassu and Jen Wood of AD–WO.

AD–WO is an art and architecture practice based in New York City, and by extension, between Melbourne and Addis Ababa. The practice aims to establish an operational terrain between architecture’s content and container, equally committed to designing buildings and reimagining their dynamic sociopolitical contexts. Founded in 2015, AD–WO has undertaken projects in Ethiopia, Tanzania, South Korea, Germany, and the United States. Their work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Architekturmueum der TU Munchen, and Art Omi. They are currently developing an apartment building in Addis Ababa.
