How do we promote community in our projects and our process?

Content, tone, and volume. We listen carefully so that our work embodies their aspirations and amplifies their voices.


Drawing People Into the Conversation

A successful process should enable and inspire dialogue, facilitate decisions, and build enthusiasm, and advocacy for the ideas explored. And it should be fun! We consistently integrate creative, playful, and participatory engagement strategies into our planning process, including both high-tech and hands-on approaches to outreach. Our dynamic process invites broad stakeholder participation within a rigorous framework so that communities affected by design play a significant role in shaping the solutions that will be theirs to own.
