What is archaeo-architecture anyway?
It's Archaeology + Architecture
For more than 15 years, we've believed in learning from our past, and sharing the architect's unique perspective on the workings of the world with our peers in archaeology.
We've dug up buildings to document them for the Historic American Building Survey, consulted with archaeologists about how the National Register would treat a historic property thats been unearthed, studied linear features like trail networks and acequias - blending in our passion for landscape into the mix. We've documented petroglyphs in new ways, reverse engineered design criteria from historic places so that we could create a set of guidelines for their preservation, and even documented the importance of archaeo-astronomy through architectural history.
We believe that we can help bring archaeology and architecture to a new level, and in doing so, we create and manifest incredible things together.
