What are the city’s special qualities?’ We’re working to create a landscape that tells a story and inspires.” When asked what her greatest concern for the future of the industry is she says, “the future of cities.” “The digital age is bringing about some real challenges post-COVID,” she says. “And the challenge of sustainability is real. When people say, ‘We can’t afford sustainability when it comes to design,’ I tell them we have to afford everything – or there will be no future to worry about.”
