Civic / Justice


BUILDING COMMUNITIES

HMC’s civic/justice practice is driven by the belief that design can change the world. We’re passionate about putting design to work in service of larger and more meaningful goals, whether it’s a new community center that revitalizes a town, or detention facility designed to promote rehabilitation and successful re-entry into society. Public architecture is a way to help people and elevate the human spirit—and in turn strengthen society. At HMC+Beverly Prior Architects, we’re committed to vital communities; browse our public architecture projects below to see how our work responds to community needs.
