:: Experience the City ::
Everyday millions of people in Phoenix wake up, get dressed, get in their automobile and drive to their jobs. They travel alone, slowly zig-zagging through traffic, stopping and going. By the time they arrive to the office the amount of stress that they have encountered already begins to place a burden on them. As designers we have the ability to craft a route to work that allows people to enjoy the morning and experience our city in a meaningful way. Phoenix is growing and continues to reinvent itself, every day it is possible to experience something new, falling deeper in love with the city.
Ditching the automobile not only allows you to become healthier physically and mentally, it is also a great money saver. Also, another wonderful aspect of ditching the automobile is that you are saving the planet from harmful emissions.
However, the most important aspect of traveling through the city under your own power is that it allows you to be inspired by every trip. You will notice little details about the city that otherwise would be a blur. Details in the building stonework and the generosity of the people that work throughout the city. The ability to come across a location and to be able to see work that takes place on a project, is something that is not really possible in an automobile. The relationship that you build with Phoenix will be passed on through the work that you do, through your heart.
