Want to live in the city of the future? Now?

You are not alone! Let's design the future together.

Our Vision

Our intention is to create a future of collective abundance and healthy global ecosystems, realized through designing buildings, towns, cities, communities, systems, and products.

Our Mission

Accelerate the global transition to resilient & regenerative human habitats so we can leave this world better than we found it.

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 community for a thousand people that will enable us to collaboratively 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

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.”

Biomimetic Design

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.

Biomimetics or biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems.” – WIKIPEDIA

Generative Design

“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

Regenerative Design

“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
