We see a future with abundance for all and healthy global ecosystems. We are committed to designing buildings, towns, cities, communities, systems, and products that will realize this vision.
Who We are
We are designers and solutionists. We want to help you and your community, organization, town or city realize its potential.
And we want you to help us build a sustainable future for all of us.
Now City One
Ultimately we want to help design entire urban environments. Dozens of new cities are being planned and we want to see them break the status quo and lead the world to levels of sustainability that do not currently exist.
In the near term, Now City One is an internal project conceived as a prototype residential tower that will enable us to experiment with the latest innovations in all aspects of building and community design, at first via pre-visualization technologies, and then IRL (in real life!)
Designing For Abundance
Leveraging exponential technologies and these modern design methodologies are the keys to developing innovative solutions.
Our growing team can put them to work for you.
“Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.” — TIM BROWN (IDEO)
When tackling global challenges, to the above definition we might add, “…the needs of the natural systems we depend on and the needs of the other lifeforms that we share this planet with.”
Nature has already solved the problem of creating small and large structures that are efficient. A growing field of experts will help us leverage this understanding.
“Generative design mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to design. Designers or engineers input design goals into generative design software, along with parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints. ” – AUTODESK
“The term “regenerative” describes processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials. Regenerative design uses whole systems thinking to create resilient and equitable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature.” – WIKIPEDIA
