• Rafael de Cárdenas / Architecture at Large (RDC/AAL) is a seasoned resource for design vision and execution with wide-ranging projects in design for residential and commercial projects, interiors, temporary spaces, furniture, and integrated objects. RDC/AAL was founded in 2006 as a small office in Chinatown, NYC. The practice remains based in NYC and works internationally. We maintain a small, dedicated, staff of professional designers with diverse backgrounds. Working with an international team of collaborators including artists, fabricators, and artisans, the studio is currently developing projects in North America, Eastern and Western Europe, and Asia.

    ‘We favor the strategic over the thematic, the cosmopolitan over the typological, and the atmospheric over the static. Ever-focused on the contemporary, we take diligent note of the past while day-dreaming the future.’
