The event program is as follows:
Design for a Changing World: How Can Architecture Respond to Societal Shifts?
Our values and beliefs define us, as well as our built environment. Architecture is a manifestation of our beliefs which, in turn, can lead us to new ways of living and valuing the world around us. 2020 has been a year of unprecedented change as our country responds to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic fallout, and the Black Lives Matter social justice movement. How will architecture, and the institutions of our communities respond? With representation from the fields of economics, sociology, arts and culture, sustainability, and architecture, our panel discussion will look for evidence of where our culture is going, and provide clues for architects as we look to re-envision our communities.
Panelists will include:
- Phil Bernstein, Associate Dean of Architecture at Yale School of Architecture
- Aimee Vieira, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Sociology at Norwich University and Interim Director, School of Justice Studies and Sociology
- Arthur Brooks, Teacher at Bennington College, Musician and Founding member of Ensemble 5
- John Fernandez, Director and Professor, MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative
- Steve Pecsok, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Economics at Middlebury College
Co-Moderators: Gregor Masefield, AIA and Jeff McBride, AIA
Panel Discussion Credits: 1.5 LU (Pending)
