has pioneered the development of a “visual language” that illustrates the patterns of linkage forming the global network. The visual language synthesizes a wide variety of data such as demographic trends, market dynamics, traffic flow, infrastructure patterns and major capital investments into diagrams that simplify the complexities of regional dynamics.

By translating complex data into easily interpreted yet detailed maps and graphics, the visual language allows spatial and other relationships to be more readily comprehended. The use of visual language facilitates discussion by making complex information equally visible to all participants and citizens.

has developed the philosophy that a comprehensive and strategic framework, built in a partnership with our clients and communities, must be created before any strategic plan or real estate project can be effective. We believe fragmented and traditional approaches are no longer viable in the 21st century.

Michael Gallis & Associates

has identified four basic principles which underlie every planning and real estate solution:
  1. Data and information are the foundation.
  2. Involving the right combination of public, private and institutional participants is vital.
  3. Effectively communicating to a wide range of audiences democratizes the process.
  4. Project management must be capable of long-term implementation.
