Design not only matters - it is essential in raising the quality of our lives and creating a sense of place. Design is necessary for forming livable communities, in inspiring settings for learning, in encouraging health, in making smart and sustainable choices, and in being stewards of our historic resources. For me, it is the aspirational aspects of architecture and design that is so powerful.
