“We are tightrope walkers. We navigate between client groups, neighborhood associations, code officials, consultants, special interests, and lawmakers. Like the best aerial walkers, we must be technically proficient, we must carry the vision, and we must be graceful.
Our best projects address the details at hand while responding well beyond the property lines of our sites. . .they anticipate future generations; they leverage our clients’ resources; they extend relationships into forging new ways of collaborating.
It is that kind of thinking—beyond the property lines—beyond now, beyond here, beyond who we now know, and beyond what we now have that typifies our work.”
