Visionary ideas ground our work and our process.
We use the term “Building Positive” to describe this approach, a tenet that’s grown organically as we’ve advocated for a better world. By Building Positive, we bring our deepest values to bear, reflecting a steadfast belief in integrated and human-purposed design. Our culture of questioning and collaboration has built positive impact in communities across the world. With a nod to our formative projects and their visionary ideas, Building Positive is a guiding principle for our work centered on three core beliefs: transformation, authenticity, and delight.
We recommit this Earth Day to a focus on Human Purposed Integrated Design and resiliency, and an interdisciplinary and inclusive design culture that fosters both.
