Summary:
This course discusses the interconnectedness between planetary health and human health and the importance of a holistic systems-wide approach towards regeneration. There is an increase in revelations around the impact of biodiversity loss, climate change and human health which is supported by data and research. By using scientific evidence supported by data and facts, it is important to understand the true connection between our ecosystems, climate, built environment and community. Using examples of tools specifically in the building industry, we will look at how these are being used to make informed decisions and develop strategies for long-term positive impact. Additionally, the course focuses on understanding what elements architects should, designers, specifiers focus on while making decisions about products.

Summary:
Water is essential for all life and is nature’s currency. As humans, we have been influencing and managing the capital of water for our own benefit and survival. But not all water is the same. Beyond this, we have reached a new era in the Anthropocene where there are critical challenges and instability to water supplies. These factors put tremendous stress on our natural ecosystems, and we have an urgent need to redesign how we interact and utilize water in order to survive, as well as to enjoy the benefits of water in all aspects of our lives. It’s up to us to be efficient and resourceful stewards of water. So how can we be inspired to think of water as a precious resource, and use the power of design to solve issues of climate change and social equity? Only we can ensure that water will be clean, healthy, and available for generations to come. By looking at examples from the past and present, as well as speculations for the future, we can tell our water story. What is your water story?

Summary:
As we transition into the post COVID-19 world, occupant wellbeing will be a primary concern across organizations globally. While we made a rapid shift to remote working and adapted to the changed scenario, as we go towards a hybrid model, what are the elements we need to focus on? This course will discuss various strategies in the built environment that will help us navigate the new workplaces. Through the lens of WELL Health Safety Rating, we will study the requirements that must be incorporated in all spaces to make occupants and visitors feel safe and comfortable. We will also analyze how can current infrastructure be used to implement newer interventions in integrating indoor/outdoor environments. It is proven that humans need contact, connection and a sense of belonging to ensure wellness. So how do we ensure the workspace environment should be a place people want to be, fostering and influencing employee health and wellbeing.

COLOR + DESIGN VISION 2022: DESIGNKIND

Presented By: Royce Epstein, A&D Design Director

Summary:
Imagine a new world where we break with the past and begin again. For many, the post-pandemic world is causing major shifts in human behavior and design is following suit. We call this Designkind, where humanity is in flux, pushed to the limits, experiencing the vulnerability and fragility of life as we know it, and rethinking the value of what’s important. This will create a new design language in unchartered territory focused on rebuilding a more resilient and inclusive world where mankind sustains during these extreme times. Our 2022 Color + Design Vision explores these relevant cultural themes and trends affecting design today. We will also share the 2022 color forecast while giving examples of how culture influences color and design direction.

FLOORING DESIGN SOLUTIONS IN THE COVID ERA

Presented By: Royce Epstein, A&D Design Director

Summary:
The world as we knew it has changed due to SARS-CoV-2, aka coronavirus. Many human behaviors have adapted to this new Covid-19 era due to the great upheaval of the pandemic. This in turn has changed entire economies, business sectors, and how we as humans interact with each other in public space. Even with vaccines and new social practices to minimize the spread of coronavirus, the effects of this new era are here to stay, as variants and potential new strains loom in the future. Therefore, architects and designers need to adopt current methodologies for buildings, which will allow people to come back to public space safely, and remain so. This CEU will explore strategies for designing floorscapes in the Covid-19 era now and in the future, where flooring solutions can be employed to plan with visual cues, systems thinking, and best practices for human-centered design.
