What drives our work

Our city impacts who we are, how we progress, what opportunities we have access to, how we feel and how we live. Simply put, the story of the city shapes our individual stories. 

Our team believes cities can be magical places. We create the projects and circumstances where that magic can touch everyday life. 

Our story is the story of the city

And it's a complex story. To make it work, we focus on creating experiences. We connect potential solutions to do-able projects. We get creative. We play with art and technology. We ask all kinds of people to join in. We build civic infrastructure. We explore ways to meaningfully connect people to place. We delve into policy. We test things. We work collaboratively and stay flexible. 

"We must free ourselves from our tendency to see cities as their buildings, and remember that the real city is made of flesh, not concrete."

-Edward Glaeser, Triumph of the City
