MIT-trained city planners Joe Brevard and Ed Shoucair started the firm in 1990 to help make a positive change in the world.

As planners we build communities and places that are welcoming, dynamic, and environmentally sound.

As designers we draw from our deep respect for nature, history, and culture to craft designs that are relevant, stir thought, and tell a story.

Our 5-time Emmy Award-winning Communications Group works to discover what people care about and then we shape campaigns to engage and inform.

Our work is fresh, practical, timely, and consistently exceeds expectations.
