OUR CORE PRINCIPLES
EACH HAS A RELATIONAL QUALITY THAT PARALLELS THE ARCHITECTONIC REFERENCE DESCRIBED BELOW.
Respect for both the environmental context, and the architectural context of a building is essential to reinforcing the fabric of community, campus, neighborhood and land. Contextual regard allows a building to claim its own space, assertively or subtly, without being disruptive.
People matter most. Tapping the intrinsic talent, intellect and energy of our firm for the greater
good leads us toward a social architecture; a virtuous architecture; a democratic architecture where everyone, rich or poor, has access to good design. Built on a foundation of compassion, decency and respect, hope is constructed where we treat others the way we hope to be treated.
