We are architects, planners, and designers out to change the world.

At the core of our practice is the idea that cities are the incubators of our greatest achievements, and the best hope for a sustainable future. We believe that architecture and design matter, and that through the application of our skills, passion, talent, and hard work we can make a difference in the world.

Our work straddles the boundary between architecture, urban design, and public policy.

Recent solutions include a new approach to sustainable affordable housing at Sendero Verde in Harlem, a creative approach to the reuse of existing infrastructure at Pier 57 on Manhattan’s West Side, and the creation of new sustainability standards for a major development partner.

We create world-class architecture.
