Firm Overview

I DREAM’D in a dream,
I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of the rest of the earth;
I dream’d that was the new City of Friends;
Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love – it led the rest;
It was seen every hour in the actions of the men of that city,
And in all their looks and words.
-Walt Whitman, Camden, NJ – 1867

Founded in 2016, City Invincible represents the merger three regional design firms making “CI” both a new firm and a firm with over forty years of combined experience.  The foundations of City Invincible are to not only provide quality professional design services but to engage with the long-term mission and vision of clients and communities.  This approach has taken the company beyond pure “sticks and bricks” construction to a company-wide philosophy that encourages community involvement, volunteerism and charity.  Creating a company with a foundation to “do well and do good” and a belief that “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts,” has energized the experienced, senior leaders at City Invincible and continues to successfully attract young talent from Philadelphia and the region.
