Claire Weisz and Adam Lubinsky specialize in retooling obsolete or inefficient systems for an equitable, sustainable future. “We’re there to show the relationship between policy and the physical environment,” Weisz says. A few current projects:

The Peninsula

In the South Bronx, Weisz and Lubinsky are turning a former juvenile detention center into an affordable-housing community with 740 apartments, artist studios, and a health center.

Kearny Point

A former shipyard in Newark, New Jersey, damaged by Hurricane Sandy, is being transformed into a climate-proof hub for makers and tech startups.

Detroit’s Eastern Market

WXY developed a master plan that includes food-processing facilities adjacent to the historic farmers’ market in order to foster a prepared-food economy and create new job opportunities.
