LAW LIBRARY INCUBATOR - concept
San Pedro Square, San Jose and Mid-Market Street (Tenderloin) occupy nodes or points at which various social uses intersect - uses that are not detectable from an aerial photo but only understood from the ground.
ASSET RICH / INCOME POOR - part 2 [design]
Most of our projects focus on re-invention, integration of social values and ideas that move forward boldly.
Design is a strategically insightful decision - it makes CONNECTIONS. In this pursuit, integral to the design approach is an avid belief in spatial exploration and ideas about communication.
The focus is design innovation through emerging technologies. Designs are located at the INTERSECTION of:
Program, Strategy and fun.
Research and Creativity
Technological and Adaptive Ecologies
Lightness, Precision and Movement
DIVIDER WALL - in production
We are dedicated to building a better future. And so questions play a large part in solutions to the building skin and the environment provided for its occupants. We take environmental concerns seriously. Therefore we have to ask:
NASA Ames Sustainability Base, Mountain View, CA and GE Software, San Ramon, CA are both projects that reflect a commitment to integrating technologies - both "high" and "low" - into a durable solution.
STEEL VEIL - design
Historic buildings provide a foundation for the regeneration of many of our towns and cities. Regenerating these buildings can reinforce a sense of community, make an important contribution to the local economy and act as a catalyst for improvements to the wider area.
New uses are allowed and sensitive adaptations facilitated, when the original use of a historic building is no longer relevant or viable.
