The Design Trust believes that public/private partnerships are the most effective way to advance the quality of our public realm. We will not undertake a project unless the city agency or community group best situated to implement the designs and plans we develop is involved from the very beginning.

By partnering with government agencies,
we ensure that our projects address the tricky political and logistical
issues that often keep good design intentions on the drawing board.
