Our Philosophy: Inspire Social Change Through Architecture and Urban Design
“Social Change” You Ask?
Influencing social change happens everyday. We read about it on social media, the internet. Experience it at school, at work and at home. We develop opinions about how social change could and should happen everyday. Ecosystems, loss of natural resources, technological change, social groups, population growth, demographics and more.
What are you doing about those opinions than enhance the broader good of our home, workplace, community, territory and world?
We choose to introduce them through architecture and urban design… inspiring healthy collaborative environments, repurpose materials, harness natural resources and assist communities. All with the hope… to inspire healthy social change.
Inspiring Social Change
Architecture can create better places, that architecture can affect society. As architects, I want to believe that architecture affects the quality of life in our communities through involvement beyond our practice. As citizens of our society, we can influence social conditions; we can even be the cause of positive social change and be a benefit to society.
As architects, we can have a significant role in improving the well-being of communities by being involved with nonprofit organizations. We can raise public awareness of critical social and environmental issues, influencing the built environment, solving problems and addressing situations beyond design through setting strategic goals and implementation plans.
