Locally-inspired architecture with a global reach
This is the first of two articles featuring the work of emerging practices from across the country, whose vision of sustainability embraces holistic solutions implemented at a small scale. The work gives physical form to the emerging culture of cooperation and collaboration that is the foundation of social sustainability. Local in its inspiration, this work nonetheless illustrates the
transformative power of architecture, and plants the seeds of civic ecologies whose principles are global in scope.
