Pattern Language – Gallery Surround

A place to remember

We love primary sources, and sometimes make our own toolkits and things. We go back to them so much that we wanted a place to put them so we wouldn't forget where they are, and so we can share them with you.

Now, we don't endorse the contents of these works (unless we made them), but on the whole these works make us think, or we go back to them enough that they are touchstones for our work.

Things we've made


Incubating City Innovation

An output of the Reimagining the Civic Commons project, we created a two-volume set of learnings for civic practitioners.

Both volumes are free to distribute and use courtesy of the Rockefeller Foundation.
