Emerging Voices Reports: Dake Wells Architecture

2020 Emerging Voices winner Dake Wells Architecture presents its work.

May 5, 2020

Emerging Voices Reports is a new digital series created in lieu of live lectures for the 2020 Emerging Voices program. From slideshow presentations to project walk-throughs, six of this year’s eight winners produced original videos to share their work after live events were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The first two lectures were presented as planned prior to the mid-March shutdown in New York.

In this video, co-founders Brandon Dake and Andrew Wells present a selection of educational buildings, with a particular focus on the context of rural Missouri, where they grew up and built their practice.
