Along with introducing new designs, MDG continues to research and test new building and delivery methods. Particularly, those tectonics that replace the consumptive nature of throwaway buildings with more substantial, flexible buildings with sustainable materials, configurations and technologies that allow buildings to be built for the near term, and evolve for the long term. Eric is a frequent consultant across the United States and beyond for new and old towns, infill projects, hamlets, and neighborhoods.
