We believe in a balanced and equitable approach to design and development, where communities have an active voice in shaping projects and benefit from their outcomes.
By channeling the powerful inputs of residents, cities, designers, and businesses, we can build urban ecosystems that are sustainable, resilient, and prosperous in the face of crisis—securing better urban living for all.
Our process starts by taking the time to include all stakeholders in shaping the project approach. Using quantitative and qualitative methods, we engage with communities to learn from their hyperlocal expertise. We prototype and refine these learnings into community-driven design solutions, often with partners in architecture, planning, and design. By grounding projects in community relationships, we can ensure a project’s long-term success.
