A focus on nonprofits first led DIGSAU to participate as a design team in the Collaborative’s Infill Philadelphia program in 2010. The experience was a valuable opportunity for the firm to present its work to a large group of engaged community members.
After DIGSAU’s involvement in Infill, the firm volunteered on the Collaborative’s West Parkside Youth Sports Facility project. DIGSAU built a tremendous relationship with the stakeholders of West Parkside. The firm has maintained a strong relationship with the community and continues to provide architectural services to West Parkside.
Why be a Corporate Champion?
Jeff Goldstein, FAIA, principal at DIGSAU, is a Collaborative board member and volunteer. Jeff believes that being a Corporate Champion is a meaningful way to affirm DIGSAU’s support of the Collaborative’s work. Additionally, DIGSAU’s involvement streamlines the firm’s ability to participate in the Collaborative’s annual events and community projects.
Founded in 2007, DIGSAU views architecture as an important vehicle in discovering the deep connections between people, places, history, and time. It is through such connections that individuals can inspire and innovate. The firm considers its architects generalists who collaborate in an inclusive manner so that all voices are heard and all ideas are explored.
