Society and industry are at a threshold moment, and buildings are an essential means for adapting to new challenges. Design is the key. Research shows that up to 90% of the eventual impact of buildings is determined with the earliest design decisions—their location, size, shape, etc. There is a relationship between form and performance, image and impact. How can buildings best embody the intersections of people, purpose, and place? If every designer understood more about the mechanics of attraction, buildings and cities could both look good and be good for you. This opportunity is nothing short of a revolution waiting to happen.
