Our Design

“As the twenty-first century unfolds, it is becoming more and more evident that the major problems of our time – energy, the environment, climate change, food security, financial security – cannot be understood in isolation. They are systemic problems, which means that they are all interconnected and interdependent. Ultimately, these problems must be seen as just different facets of one single crisis, which is largely a crisis of perception. It derives from the fact that most people in our modern society, and especially our large social institutions, subscribe to the concepts of an outdated worldview, a perception of reality inadequate for dealing with our overpopulated, globally interconnected world.”

FROM SURVIVOR to THRIVER:
OUR PATHWAYS TO RESILIENCE 

Disasters and displacement are complex situations that call for a whole systems framework and response. Using a trauma - informed understanding of loss and damages, we aim to respond in various stages of recovery from short term to long term with a preventive direction every step of the way.  

REGENERATIVE and WHOLE SYSTEMS  
DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT 

We design with observation, collective wisdom, and with nature. Here are some design frameworks we follow while rooted in and acknowledging local and indigenous knowing and best practices. (Click on the image to see the full framework)
