Architecture: “the profession of designing buildings, open areas, communities, and other constructions and environments…”

Sustainability: “to support, hold, keep going… to supply with the necessities of life…to provide for…”

After centuries of spearheading the transformation of wilderness into cities, it is clear that architecture’s most important and sacred task today is to hold a vision of balance among all living systems on earth. We know that restoring such balance depends on making far-reaching adjustments in how we humans design, build, and occupy our homes, workplaces and communities. As architects, we believe that positive change is possible, and are committed to playing a critical leadership role in this forward movement and transformation.
