He said, “What I know as a community architect is that design of our built and natural environment can either tear communities apart or bring communities together.” Sharing both personal experiences and details on a few developments in the Pacific Northwest, Quirindongo asserts that community engagement acknowledges that all humans have a right and responsibility to invest in their built environment to promote social change.
