Urbanism on Stage: DFI marks its presence 

We trust that architecture and urban design together - done right should be socially transformative. Foremost as humanist philosophers and then as designers, we at DFI have always aimed for our projects to go beyond the functional and connect with the human spirit through poetic and philosophical underpinnings. The balance of urban design, architecture, and innovation reflected in our projects is a result of our whetted curiosity and humility to learn from our surroundings.
