Which trends in sustainability are you seeing?

“The big trend is that sustainability now is important to every client. It’s great to see strategies that planners and urban designers have always viewed as good design in terms of creating walkable, livable cities now are aligned with sustainability priorities. These ideas lead to the same place: the creation of great cities.”
