Success Story: Overland Partners
A special Thank You to the Alamo Asian Chamber of Commerce for their feature on our firm and our international practice.
For nearly thirty years, Overland Partners Architects has provided comprehensive design in architecture and planning that thoughtfully integrates technology, art, and craft through world-class, innovative, sustainable solutions. The San Antonio-based firm works throughout the world, with projects located in the United States, Latin America, and Asia. Their work is diverse both in scale and type, ranging from visitors centers and art museums to Fortune 500 headquarters, homeless shelters to luxury private homes, universities to urban design. Over the past five years, Overland has expanded their international work to China with the design of several world-class mixed-use urban renewal projects.
The expansion of their practice into China, however, has not been without its challenges. Working in a new culture and context brings with it many unknowns and the need for different design approaches. Some of the challenges encountered include differences in legal systems, written and oral communication barriers, and variations in technical requirements and deliverables.
