Every building is a reflection of the client, and of the listening skills of the design team.

PDT was founded forty years ago on the premise that design is a team sport, and that the best ideas come from people working together in an immersive, crackling atmosphere where teaching and learning are constant. This kind of work demands that the client, designers, and engineers listen to each other and be open to experimentation and sharing. The test is what works and what doesn’t work, not whose idea it was. It’s hard to shed hierarchies, but the best idea can come from anyone.
