Our History

We believe...

Communities can plan their own futures.
Inclusive and participatory planning always results in better policies, projects and programs.
Elegant design inspires new thinking.
Design is not our end goal—our end goal is to connect people to each other.
All built work should be context driven.
Great places reflect the community’s culture, history, geography—and aspirations.
is always
a given.
Every person has a right to fully participate in the built environment.
The world needs an ecological perspective.
Carefully designed environments require holistic, evidence-based research and analysis.
Great projects add value beyond the project.
Thriving neighborhoods and communities can improve everyone’s life.
