What I do
i believe in COLLABORATION. I believe that there should be an inherent collaboration between the building blocks of a city: design, neighborhoods, business/marketplace, and the daily user. When there is a breakdown in any area then the system begins to crumble. For example, the daily user must buy into the design (and/or vision) of the city to effectively contribute to its well-being. When the user does not, they will not care about the city’s growth. Instead, they will look outside for education, entertainment, or employment eventually leaving their place. The same is true if healthy companies and businesses do not exist. People will leave. There is an intra-connection within the city, as well as, an interconnection between these groups. I believe in doing all we can to see healthy relationships from the vision of a city to its daily user.
