H3 HARDY COLLABORATION ARCHITECTURE
is a collaborative community of professionals founded in 2004 by celebrated architect Hugh Hardy, FAIA and guided by six partners. H3’s team delivers a distinctive approach to planning and design that fosters dialogue among history, innovation, and contemporary use. We have worked with many city, state and federal government agencies as well as community, homeowner, and citizen groups. We respect and encourage a diversity of community voices by providing an open forum to address unique issues or concerns.
Cities offer experiences impossible to find elsewhere. The essence of this experience lies in great public places: streets, theaters, museums, restaurants and parks. H3 has been involved in numerous planning, programming, and feasibility studies for the arts as well as studies for the establishment of arts and entertainment districts. These projects typically involve collaboration with financial and arts consultants to determine the market viability of various private and public artistic/entertainment uses. We then examine mechanisms to implement such districts and facilities. Our planning efforts lead to implementation of policies that support and foster local cultural economies, arts and creative facilities, vibrant public spaces with major cultural programming, and streetscape design that form art corridors.
WEBB MANAGEMENT SERVICES
is one of the nation’s leading providers of cultural and project planning services having completed over 250 assignments. Our mission is to support the creative process with sound and imaginative planning and services that lead to cultural and community development. We believe the arts play a vital role in shaping our world. Through consulting, training and research, our firm works to strengthen the management and planning skills of the decision-makers who create and sustain diverse cultural communities. Clients include local governments, colleges and universities, nonprofit arts organizations, development agencies and other entities exploring cultural development.
