Our mission is to improve the quality of life of under-served populations through the built environment.

What do we do?

We design and build places to address critical issues such as water scarcity, flooding, lack of public space and facilities, civic amenities, waste management, and similar.

We use a collaborative research, design and construction process that connects people from different constituencies to each other and to the places we propose and build.

We provide education and skill development to people to study, design, test, construct and become stewards of both the built and un-built environments.

Core beliefs:

We believe that designers of the built environment have a critical role to play in addressing issues of the Anthropocene.

We believe that good design should be accessible to everyone.

We value the expertise and voices of all stakeholders who craft the built environment – from designers in interior architecture, architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, planning and construction management to user communities and civic leaders.

We value diverse contributions, and we understand that valuing diversity means respecting and understanding dissent and having the flexibility to make things work for different people with different needs, constraints, hopes, expectations and dreams.
