Rios Clementi Hale Studios was founded in 1985 as a multi-disciplinary design firm that maintains that design is everything in the built environment. This innate understanding led to an ethos of design as a continuum, a notion that defined transdisciplinary practice and a body of work that celebrates the connection between people and place.

 
 

The firm operates at the intersection of architecture, landscape, urban planning, interior design, graphics and signage, exhibit, and product design to inform design at all types and scales. The firm released Not Neutral: For Every Place, Its Story, a robust visual collection of its diverse portfolio.
