About the Alliance

Integrative Design Collaborative—

Partners in Whole System Design

A consortium whose advanced practitioners serve as coaches, resources and program managers, IDC helps project teams achieve increasingly higher levels of environmentally responsible design. Our work centers on creating the framework for and managing an integrative, whole-system design process, evolving building and community planning. Wherever we work, we strive to promote a deeper understanding of the benefits of people acting in accord with natural systems. Ultimately, our goal is to improve the overall quality of the physical, social and spiritual life of living places and, therefore, the planet’s.
