Able City is the evolving result of one firm’s re-imagined reason-for-being within the profession of architecture. It is re-built on the foundation of the principle of “shared value,” that is: creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society by addressing its needs and challenges.
The most pressing need for cities is to be more responsive to the aspirations of their citizens. Because cities are built by policy long before a social program is instituted or a project is commissioned and built, the challenge cities face is the institutionalizing of collaborative civic engagement. As such, the company’s highest purpose is to advance the potential of cities to be able to deliver a better quality of life and place, inclusively with its citizens, through design and strategic services for an engaged city.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism.
