Some Points to Consider on Regeneration

  1. Experiencing Whole Systems
  2. Sustaining Sustainability


Practice/Process Steps

Using the following methods, we work with stakeholders to develop an understanding of how buildings, habitat, and people can contribute to ‘the health of the whole’ over time. The objective is to align human activity with the nature of Place – the process asks how we can be participants with the Place – not limiting ourselves by assuming we can only do something to the Place.

  1. Setting the Stage – understanding and aligning human aspirations of a project
  2. Learning about the Place
  3. Frame/sketch/outline the story of Place
  4. Marrying story of Place with aspirations for future
  5. Identify indicators
  6. Integrative Design/Construction Process
  7. Ongoing Feedback
