Our team

We are a mission-driven team of strategists, designers, planners, researchers, and international development experts partnering with people and communities to reimagine our future and institutionalize change.

Collaborators

We use a collaborative consulting model to engage subject matter experts and subcontractors when appropriate to enhance project-specific capacity. This collaborative model enables our team to be flexible and cater to the contextual and cultural aspects of each project.

Our story

We founded 3×3 in 2013 based on a belief that systemic change requires intersectional and equity-centered approaches. From our backgrounds in architecture, urban planning, and international development, we saw stakeholders on the ground consistently being left out of decisions that affected them most—both unintentionally and by design. Our mission is to apply community-centered design to reform decision-making, redistribute power, and create healing space to center the power and voices of communities historically impacted by oppressive systems.

Our studio in downtown Brooklyn is located on the Lenapehoking, the traditional land of the Lenape people. Our office in New Delhi is situated on the land of Ahir clan and Yadu tribes. We acknowledge and share gratitude for the stewards of these lands as both historic and contemporary communities. Through our practice, we strive to redress legacy systems of oppression, colonialism, and racism.

Work with us

As a rapidly growing company, we are always looking for talented professionals to grow our capabilities. Potential roles include permanent staff positions, as well as short-term technical consultancies for upcoming projects. If you're interested in joining our team, we want to hear from you.
