The four themes are threads that weave the work together and as a whole define the design philosophy of the firm. The firm's emphasis on sustainability is a current that runs through the narrative of each book. Each book focuses on design process and collaboration. Each project is presented in depth and will underscore the methodology, aesthetics, techniques and ethos of the firm. With future volumes planned, these sets will track the progression of ideas that evolve over time through the work that enacts the ideas, and informs the work to come. REVEAL exposes the territory between architecture and landscape. Buildings and urban plans apply an ecological approach, merging with the larger structures of the environment. Architecture and constructed systems resonate with natural systems, bringing the experience of landscape to designed space. FILTER refines the association between architecture and context. Vernacular structures and distinctive local customs provide a frame of reference for the generation of form. Incorporating culture and climate infuses buildings with a sense of place and develops a close bond with the natural environment. EVOLVE advances the bond between architecture and history. Remaking historic buildings and districts engages culture, heritage, and conservation along with architecture and planning. Materials, methods, and expression foster respect, authenticity, and interconnectivity in buildings new and old. EFFECT realizes the relationship between architecture and program. The function and use of a building offer a powerful conceptual tool that may be interpreted and inflected. Crafted alongside the tangible components of a building, the intangible aspects of program enhance form and function.
