ABOUT THE COLLABORATIVE
A Cross-Disciplinary Network of Changemakers
We are a group of sustainable designers, activists, and systems thinkers on a journey to change the world with design. Our work is based on a respect for Earth, her natural resources, and carrying capacity. Motivated by the disastrous impacts of a changing climate being witnessed around the world, we are dedicated to restoring harmony and regenerating communities in the built and natural worlds, simultaneously.
We are a team of architects, engineers, planners, lawyers, geologists, biologists, yogis, and organizers who are motivated to change the world through good design.
We know that in the next thirty years, two billion new people will be living in cities in the developing world where housing, food, and water shortages have created unsustainable patterns of growth. We are committed to empowering the people in these places to build communities that are healthy and inspiring.
We also know that in order to shift the paradigm of human habitation on Earth to one that is able to be sustained, a change in consciousness must be made. We emphasize the role of the built environment in reminding humans of their connection to the Earth and how this is a critical element in the global paradigm shift. Knowing that the places in which we live shape our worldview and lives, architecture is therefore the primary focus of our collaboration, within the context of sustainable development.
