Our Mission:

Create a Sustainable Nation in Four Generations

Our Vision

THE PATTERN PROJECT is a way for sustainable urbanists across the globe to connect with each other, learn best practices, prove success, and widely implement what works best to accelerate our sustainable future. We provide education through conferences and workshops, as well as consulting services to communities interested in accelerating sustainable implementations.

The Book

From bestselling author Douglas Farr comes Sustainable Nation: Urban Design Patterns for the Future. This book serves as the inspiration for the Pattern Project, which we hope will be a living resource for neighborhoods.

“Sustainable Nation is the operating manual we need to speed up change.”
