No single building or property exists in a vacuum. The context of each structure and space influences the built environment. Our planners and urban designers understand the symbiotic and, at times, competing interests of the individual project and broader community. We also know how to align the two to create something larger than any one person or institution. By bringing all stakeholders together on a single team, we help our clients focus on what is possible. Today that collaborative approach to planning and urban design is evident in the numerous HOK-designed towns, campuses, parks, neighborhoods, districts and landscapes that respond to the economic, social, environmental and connective needs of the people in that community.
