Why we do it:
We can no longer afford the sprawl of suburbia or the blight of urban wastelands, either economically or socially. We seek to reconstitute prosperity of individuals & families and viable future for our towns and villages: our communities.
Buildings, neighborhoods, and towns should function in a way that maximizes social interaction, economic and cultural vitality, spiritual development. Ultimately this will lead to a higher quality of life and sustainability.
Truly sustainable design must be rooted in and evolve from adaptation to local climate. The primary objective of the design of new buildings and the adaptive reuse of older ones is to create a cultural permanence inspired by well-crafted, and beloved structures of enduring quality.
