One of the (many) things we love about the ambulatory clinic we designed for @mercy_health Deerfield is the generous amount of light that streams into the lobby, staff areas, and corridors. Pulling exam rooms off the building's perimeter creates more privacy for patients and lets ample daylight be a shared amenity.

Water connects and sustains us all, but not everyone has reliable access to it. Through our partnership with @fillitforward every fill and scan helps reduce plastic waste, and fund projects that provide clean water, hygiene, and sanitation infrastructure for communities in need.

Thanks to the efforts of our employees, consultants, and clients, we've diverted nearly 82lbs of waste and kept 16.35lbs of plastic out of the oceans. Summer is almost here! Stay hydrated and keep filling it forward! #architecture #design #sustainability #water #reduce #reuse #cleanwater #choosetoreuse #alwaysgiving

GBBN’s annual Design Issues Series (DIS) kicked 2021 off by convening community leaders—activists, policymakers, academics, and elected officials—to discuss inequities in our built environment and steps that people are taking to build a world that nourishes all.

Link in bio to check out our mid-year progress report, catch highlights, view videos of panel discussion, find great organizations to support, and offer suggestions about how GBBN's DIS team can help provide support to an environmental justice effort. #architecture #design #environmentaljustice #buildingjustice #community
