We help mission driven people, companies, and organizations transform spaces, places, and systems.

FORM Coalition is an architecture & design practice specializing in the neighborhood scale. We help people build the world they want to live in by engaging design thinking and community-driven processes.



Like slow food and slow fashion, our process is deliberate and considered, with an emphasis on authenticity and shared values. We work with clients using a transparent and thoughtful process that always holds the big picture in mind.


We take a place-based approach, no matter where we work. We look for local collaborators, build lasting relationships, support grassroots efforts, and make decisions based on the long-term impact on communities and people. We love working with people who are invested in their place.


People know what they need--it's our job to draw that out. We solicit input from a variety of voices, and make space for those voices to be heard. We are open to solutions from unlikely places. We expect to be surprised.
