ALAN FORD ARCHITECTS Alan Ford Architects is a leading Colorado architect committed to green building design and, in particular, the promotion and design of green schools. The architecture firm is grounded in finding sustainable architectural solutions within the context of the existing environment, culture and climate. Alan Ford Architects' mission is to create architecture of distinction that enhances the quality of life of its users through high-performance design and detailing combined with a long-standing commitment to sustainability. While sustainable buildings and school design are at the forefront of the firm's objectives, the architects also focus on a variety of additional project types including office, retail and mixed-use developments; performing arts facilities; single family residential; multifamily residential; and sports and fitness centers. The process is meant to be fun and collaborative. The participants in the collaborative process are tailored to the individual needs of each project and, in addition to the client/users, the team may include a variety of creative engineers, associated architects, artists, craftsmen, industrial designers, graphic designers and builders. Investigation is fundamental to the firm's goal of creating architecture of enduring value. Borrowing from children's writer Mary Pope Osborne, it is about "Creating Something New from Something Old" -- linking hands with the place, the past and the future.
