Environments for civic and cultural activities should naturally enrich and inspire the people they attract. Whether developing world-class exhibition space, restoring a landmark building, or updating a historic library with 21st-century technology, we approach each of these projects holistically. We explore the institution—what it is, who depends upon it, and what it endeavors to become—and devise a plan to underscore its strengths and realize organizational aspirations. We love the ways that architecture and design can bring enduring value to built civic environments and the communities they serve.
