Southern California, and much of the US, is in the process of redefining itself once again. People are returning into our cities, and our urban environments are adapting to this trend with new means of transit and intensified mixed use developments that echo a lifestyle almost forgotten in our recent sprawling, suburban history.
We practice at the very forefront of this trend. We are promoting an old fashioned and timeless way of designing our cities for people first, in a framework that orders the elements into a network of streets, squares, and blocks.
Urban design is about making connections between people and places, movement and urban form, nature and the built fabric. Urban design draws together the many strands of place-making, environmental stewardship, social equity and economic viability into the creation of places with distinct beauty and identity.
