Quarter Century of Creating Change for Good

MIT-trained city planners Joe Brevard and Ed Shoucair started the Collaborative to help make a positive change in the world. Since 1990 the firm has worked to turn contaminated brownfields into parks enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people. Once depressed areas of cities and towns are now home to new residents and businesses. Forgotten downtowns are destinations for communities to gather and celebrate. Pedestrians and cyclists travel on paths along abandoned railroad tracks. Individuals in wheelchairs navigate subway and train stations more easily. Rivers and coastal waters are cleaner. Students in classrooms across the country use scores of exciting education tools developed by the firm to explore science, technology, engineering, math and design topics.

The Collaborative began as an outgrowth of Wallace Floyd Associates, a firm founded with Buckminster Fuller to design and build such signature projects as Epcot Center and the United States Pavilion at Expo 67. We ascribe to Fuller’s view of a world rich with connections. This unified and systematic approach we find again and again leads to the most appropriate and elegant ideas and solutions.
