Futurological Design for Pioneering Transformation in the World
As a visionary environmental designer, I bridge between design-science, design fiction, and science fiction to create environmental design concepts that innovate human experience in ways not seen before.
What I do
I create visionary environmental design concepts that unlock innovative future trajectories to turn our world's biggest challenges into opportunities.
Join me. Become a changemaker.
NEED A ROADMAP?
As a passionate environmental designer and author, I create visionary environments to research futures that unlock how to make our world an even better place. Over the years, thousands of you have joined me on this unique design journey, and I love hearing about how my work has inspired or sparked breakthroughs in your design thinking, processes, and results. For this reason I started SupraPlace, a digital portal where I pull back the curtain to share behind-the-scenes insights into my visionary designs and research discoveries — in a much deeper, more immersive, and timely way.
Consider the SupraPlace Portal a "bridge" between my introspective design work and my final published books and films. As a SupraPlace Member, you can join me to travel along this bridge striving to uplift quality of life through environmental design that also happens to bring us great joy and fulfillment as it evolves from initial idea, to visionary concept, and beyond.
Creating new possibility.
Decades of experience, award-winning design, and concepts that disrupt the status quo.
