If I tell you the story about whose lives are better, because we make this. And I let you know how they feel and how that impacts you. That's a story that people want to listen to. And so I think as architects, it's our job to tell a story in a way that daylights everything, not just numbers that lead to return on investment, not just you'll feel better at night because this building is 4% more efficient.
That doesn't mean anything to anymore. It's all of the things. And it's telling the story in a way of, I'm not going to tell you doing state story about what happens if we don't do this, but I am going to tell you stories about our beautiful future, where we can keep reading the air and drinking the water and eating food, because we have.
And I think that piece is missing sometimes in the presentation of here's your new building.
