Architectural design for civic projects demands a keen understanding of sense of place. What makes this community and landscape unlike any other? First, we seek to understand. The needs, preferences and challenges of the community inform every stage of the design and build process. In essence, civic spaces should facilitate and foster social relationships. Great civic design brings people together who would perhaps otherwise never cross paths, providing opportunities for citizens to develop that foundational element of civic engagement, empathy.
