It all started with a vision
and a white box...

Like every brilliant monument and society that endures, CORE: is built not just on bedrock, but on principles.

CORE:

Core Principle

Revolution

has it principles:


Inspired by these principles, we have thoughtfully curated a wide array of experiences in anticipation of our tenth anniversary.

Core Principle

II

Individuality

To thine own self be true.
All men and women are created equal—that’s part of the problem.
Each of these equals is an individual, unique to the core—but how many times,
every day, does that individuality get swallowed or subsumed?
No wonder that anywhere you can really be yourself is like
a patch of sun in a sea of gray.

Core Principle

III

Freedom

Freedom is everything.
It should be as fundamental as air; if only it were.
The freedom to choose. The room to breathe. The time to relax, sit, talk.
If only someone could clear the path of red tape and roadblocks
so you could do exactly what you wish.
So simple. And so rare.

Core Principle

IV

Knowledge

Knowledge itself, Bacon said, is power. You know what you want;
you know what works, what doesn’t. That’s why you make the decisions.
What if someone knew you well enough to anticipate what you wanted
before you asked for it? What if someone knew you well enough to suggest
something else, something you didn’t know about? Something better?
Knowledge isn’t just power. It’s fuel to take you as far as you want to go.

Beauty

Some things, it seems, were created to impress, to dazzle—perhaps even
to overwhelm. But the most beautiful things are those you come back to
again and again. A spectacular work of art, a building that ingeniously marries
form and function. The things that draw you in over and over are
not always the things that scream for attention, but those that offer
inspiration, even relief. Beauty has many advantages.
But perhaps most underrated is how it moves us, transforms us.
Beautiful, isn’t it?

Core Principle

VI

Strength

Strength is more than force, more than muscle.
Strength is focus. Strength is commitment. Strength is fortitude--
it’s what makes you endure and perform at your best, day in and out.
Being strong means having a solid core that,
no matter what, enables you to take on all comers.
It’s your forte. Ours, too.

Core Principle

VII

Happiness

Worry’s greatest nemesis?
Simply a healthy dose of something, someplace,
someone that makes you happy. A seat on the aisle.
The morning paper after an exhilarating workout.
A great dinner at your favorite place with your best friend.
The waiter already knows what you want.
How can anxiety compete?

VIII

Community

There are people you take your leave of at the end of the day,
and people you hold on to. The company you keep is everything;
they help you relax, reflect, recharge.
You know who they are; a lively, dynamic mix of people.
They know you; a lively, dynamic mix of a person.
E pluribus unum. Not a bad motto.

Core Principle

Gravity

Isn't gravity fabulous?
