“ As architects steadfastly supporting positive social change through our active involvement in improving the physical fabric of urban communities , we see architecture as a social art . We ’ re committed to improving the lives of all people irrespective of race , religion , origin , or economic class . It ’ s reflected in our diverse firm , where inclusivity is a core value , and the diverse communities we ’ ve served for more than 55 years . With today ’ s heightened awareness of society ’ s structural biases , our team is actively reaffirming these commitments .” — Alex Brito , AIA
