We are in an exciting era of rapidly changing cities that promise to improve the fabric of life in urban spaces. As technology continues to alter the way we live and work within cities, designers have an opportunity and responsibility to help shape better environments for people. We recognize the need for shared value between citizens, civic stakeholders, and commerce. By leveraging existing design methods for new challenges, we can shape solutions within the complex and demanding civic ecosystem that can be used by everyone. By becoming part of this conversation, we as designers can help ensure that our voices, and the voices of citizens, are heard and that cities of the future are places that we want to live, work, and contribute to.
