Systemic view: connecting the dots, breaking up the silos​
Cities and communities are living, open systems."Solutions" and plans focused on functions -real estate, business, security, tourism and so on- beget systemic problemas and unintended consequences.
Gentrification accentuates isolation and develops ghettos, depressing the same real estate values that intended to rise.
Public housing without sustainable jobs harbors crime and social unrest, as well as family dissolution. 
Systemic problem can spiral down into loops of "middle class flight" and "urban blight" feeding each other.
Our approach integrates all areas and systems and all stakeholders around a shared vision.
