An Architecture of Optimism

The time to define the architecture of optimism is now. The future of our cities depends on it.

Optimistic architecture isn’t architecture for the sake of architecture and doesn’t seek to glorify form. Rather, it’s an architecture that seeks to express its purpose in every aspect of the design – one that promotes wellness and celebrates life. It’s an architecture that makes people feel safe and can be trusted while still being inspirational. It’s design that supports the human experience at every scale and level of our daily lives.

To achieve this trust, we can design our environments to promote a healthier, safer way of being together, whether that’s in a workplace, a residential building, or public space.
