Good partnerships are organic, responsive and flexible. 

They sit on solid foundations and go with the flow. 

Their design is about connections and delineations,

as the water flows, as the rock divides. 

They are patient and sustained,

but also quick and adaptable. 

They are contextual and modular, stable in their settings,

all the while seeking new ways, evolving over time.

This is about putting people first, as partners,

for the sake of development and collaboration. 

This is about informed and empowered choices

to create structures that serve partners,

not the other way around.
