We believe there are many future architects out there, tirelessly pursuing their visions of a better future and seeking camaraderie in their pioneering journeys. These kindred spirits are aligned on their purpose and orientation, but often lack the language to define their complex identities in order to recognize each other. Untethered from a center of gravity, they are limited in their ability to amplify collective impact.
Our proposition is three-fold:
- Help future architects find each other by creating gathering opportunities.
- Create a lexicon and build a culture to support high-impact collaborative endeavors.
- Cultivate and codify a distinct practice of future architecture to attract game-changing resources.
The Guild is a membership organization. As members, we co-design annual convenings, local gatherings, digital meetups and a variety of learning programs to bring the whole community together in meaningful ways that prioritize commitment over networking.
The primary pursuit of the Guild is the development and cultivation of Shared Futures. We offer a range of field-building and capacity-building programs to drive collective impact.
We offer an intelligent system to capture, synthesize and share learning generated from the future architects ecosystem in the form of open data, research, practice, resource exchange and creative media content.
