In an effort to escape the homogeneity and monotony typically generated by conventional planning practices, we seek to create visual and actual variety. It is our belief that diversity and redundancy encourage a healthier, more robust ecology, less susceptible to disease; more capable of withstanding shock.
As socioeconomic conditions continue to change at increasingly rapid rates we need to redesign the current planning and zoning issues which have been prevalent through urban developments. Rather than impose a specific set of programmatic requirements, we propose a performance based use pattern designed to meet today’s spatial requirements yet remain flexible enough to accommodate the unpredictable demands of tomorrow. The formal expression of this performance based approach to land use yields a variety of beautifully compelling configurations.
