10^10 The exponential power of design:

10^1 propagates and executes simple and beautiful design ideas that have humanitarian and environmental impact!

10^2 exploits contemporary communication media and building technologies to provide smart design system solutions to pressing global problems!

10^3 harnesses the power of the individual within the collective for culturally sensitive local effects that spread globally!

10^10 projects:

1. Address a pressing humanitarian, environmental, and social need.

2. Exploit contemporary technologies to execute visionary and innovative ideas to systemic global problems.

3. Be simple, smart and quickly implemented while still being adaptable, flexible, and beautiful.

4. Address the individual scale with as much detail as the global scale with a focus on exponential effect.
