we design with purpose

design and the global challenge

By 2050 nearly 10-billion people will live on earth, desperately requiring innovative and regenerative community development solutions. Already at the forefront of pressing global issues are access to precious water, healthy food sources, scarce arable land and clean, affordable energy. The negative impacts of climate change overshadow all other environmental threats and goals - this is the defining issue of our time. Smart, scalable and culturally relevant environmental design is at the crosshairs of social and technological innovations required to create real solutions.

The effects of ongoing climate change (erratic precipitation and temperature patterns, rising sea levels, and violent weather events) will change where and how communities are designed and developed, as well as how existing communities are fortified to become more resilient. There will be an increasing need for desirable off-grid capable neighbourhoods comprised of power positive homes and buildings, meaningful and memorable public spaces, water management, and waste-to-resource systems that are based on best practice resiliency techniques. Advances in technology and design will need to inspire the development of much simpler, complete and resilient communities.
