Our History - A Story of Design, Build, Use
Part 1 of 4

22 years ago, Gail and Matt Taylor moved to Boulder, Colorado to start a new business based on a unique way of working.

Both, by this time, had over 20 years work experience—Gail in education, Matt in architecture [please register with knetweb]—their focus, in 1979, was on creativity, the environment that stimulates it, and why individuals and organizations were not using - to greater individual and social advantage - the many alternatives that were available to them.

What is now MG Taylor Corporation, AI, the knOwhere Stores, Yolke (CyberConn® Systems) and iterations was started in Boulder in August 1979.

The first environment, the Anticipatory Management Center, was built in the spring of 1980. The first work done in the Center was for the Affordable Housing Project DesignShop® process with the City of Boulder.

The Taylors left Boulder at the end of 1983 when The Acacia Group purchased the Enterprise. However, the environmental design group stayed behind and is now AI, an affiliate member and business unit of the MG Taylor ValueWeb™ network.

In this regard, MG Taylor has never left Boulder and the place of its origin.
