July 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Register Now


The sudden arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a fundamental design standard shift focused on interventions to mitigate the spread of airborne viruses, the effects of which will be channeled into architecture, engineering and construction practices for years to come. In this new normal, the concepts of health and wellness take on new meaning in the built environment. It is clear that as designers and builders of physical spaces that people interact with and are exposed to, there is an imperative to rethink design and construction as public health solutions to pandemics. Hear from fellow Emerging Professionals and other community members in the architecture, engineering and construction industries about important trends and changes that they see as integral to the future of the built environment and its design.
