  • IFMA 

As we migrate out of the COVID-19 pandemic back to ‘normal life,’ it is important to consider “lessons learned” as a part of the experience. The design of the built environment, in its totality, has emerged as the single most critical factor impacting the human condition, as over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Stakeholders in the building, design, construction, and management sectors must collaborate more than ever, as the scope of work is interdisciplinary and vitally connected. Essential in this conversation is the work of scientists and biologists, researchers, and medical professionals that provide rich data that informs decisions relative to the design of buildings and interior space. In a moderated discussion with an interdisciplinary panel, experts engage in deliberate and thoughtful discourse regarding challenges, experiences, and learning over the last year and a half. Through this conversation, they share insights and provide guidance that helps to inform future initiatives for collaborative and integrative design practice.

Supported By

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 inaccessibility to water supplies. These factors put tremendous stress on our natural ecosystems, and we have an urgent need to redesign how we interact with and utilize water in order to survive, as well as how 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?

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this session, participants will be able to identify ways in which water is nature’s currency:

  • Learn how water is essential to life and show how humans have managed water for civilization and culture.
  • Analyze examples of design in water from the past, present, and speculative future in the service of how man needs to manage water to survive.
  • Explore the three states of water – solid, liquid, and vapor – as categories of design methodologies and designing for nature.
  • Learn new design concepts that aim to solve the challenges of climate change.

Evolutions in Residential Design: Adaptive Living Solutions

More Information
Overview

Connect with your peers as you learn about adaptive living solutions for residential design, with a focus on adapting to aging in place, the pandemic, and climate change.

Over the past year and a half we all have adapted our living situations as we shifted to not only to living at home, but also to working and learning during the pandemic. The ASID Adaptive Living Task Force is exploring solutions for people to adapt their living situations to accommodate stay-at-home orders, aging in place, and climate change, to name a few. Understand how these external factors are forcing changes in residential interior design solutions, and learn about tools to incorporate adaptive living solutions at all levels of affordability. This is also an opportunity to share your ideas and experience with your peers.     

Format: Peer-to-peer  

Attendees will interact with each other in virtual breakout rooms. Attendees’ camera and audio capabilities will be turned on for this session.
