Information technology is ingrained with the intent to design with ‘place' and all of its complexity, diversity and life. And Information technology is infused with a sense of compassion, fairness and equity for all peoples and their communities. Science forms the core of our practice. Science that is as informed by rigorous field investigations and meticulous research as Information technology is from knowing the land and learning its stories.

Patterns, connections and relationships continually reveal themselves through stories, providing a rich tapestry of life that forms the basis of our design ethos.
