Desire Line LLC
About Desire Line LLC
In planning, architecture, and engineering fields; desire lines represent a record of civil disobedience, where pedestrians ignore formal routes in favor of short cuts, or more efficient (unplanned) paths in and around public or private spaces. They provide feedback to project designers on where people naturally walk and what may have been a more efficient route from one place to another. They represent human nature's boldness and our desire for choice, and manifest in our environment as well-worn ribbons of dirt or beaten trails off a sidewalk.
They are not pretty; They are meaningful.
Those who are independent enough to begin a new path, flatten the grass, and leave behind evidence of their choice can write their own story in the built environment. These stories represent the core mission of our company: understanding the individuality of people and cultures and fitting plans, projects, grants, and programs to reflect the path they desire to take in the most efficient (and effective) manner possible. We are change agents focused on action and movement with a keen appreciation for difference, individuality, and nuance.
We understand the political and legislative mechanisms at local, state, and federal levels; constraints associated with public work, increased flooding, financial, and hiring issues; and have a demonstrated history of developing feasible approaches and projects that work in alignment with local conditions and enhance the quality of life for public servants, area residents and businesses.
