Adaptive Transformation

The biggest potential lies in what already exists

Seismic shifts in the way we work, spend, and live our lives are making entire building-types obsolete.

This creates a major challenge for the sustainable transition of cities. Demolition and rebuilding is one of the world’s greatest contributors to carbon, resource and material waste, and we are developing new tools and methods to allow adaptive transformation of buildings to compete as a value proposition. We have created new design methods, digital techniques and financial analysis tools that more accurately quantify the process and ROI in transformation.
