An authentic space is rooted in its locale. It does not need to be old, but if it’s authentic it knows where it’s from. It’s not fake, and it’s not bland. It is real and tangible. It evokes deep-felt emotions and is connected, organically, to its purpose and its place.
Architecture and design that creates enriched environments is developed with connectivity to its local community. It knows what is it there for. It reflects the personal investment of its creators—and through its deep sense of purpose, place and intent, it radiates authentic meaning and intent. It belongs.
