Project Portfolio

The EcoDesign Collaborative, a subsidiary of The Ecological Design Institute, creates architecture and community plans for diverse clients and programs. Our portfolio features housing and residences; retreat, resort and health centers; environmental and learning facilities; office buildings and planned communities. We strive for design that integrates people, nature and technology in ways that are functional, beautiful, cost effective and sustainable.

"I see our work as an effort to make architecture relevant to the central challenge of our time: designing for change in ways that are compatible with maintaining the living systems that support all life on earth. Our work marries nature and technology. Design is the link between nature and culture."
