Architecture Lecture Series
The Architecture Lecture Series welcomes architecture and experiential design leaders from around the country to the School of Architecture & Design. Lecturers bring a wide range of expertise in areas such as sustainable building, digital environments, public interest design, historic preservation, health and wellness design, and more.
Lectures begin at 12:00 p.m. on Zoom.
The Architecture Lecture Series curators have teamed up with the School's Institute of Design to create a series of “Grand Rounds” lectures that will address healthcare design during and after the public health crisis due to COVID-19. Some of the country’s leading healthcare design experts will discuss strategies and solutions to combat current and future crises through design and research.
September 10 | COVID / Care / Community
How can architecture support responses to the current COVID-19 pandemic and other crises caused by natural and manmade disasters? This panel discussion will address the public health characteristics of the current COVID event, how the architecture community is responding to support community -wide initiatives, specific healthcare building strategies, and post-event disaster recovery efforts.

October 8 | Understanding VR in Architectural Design and Research
Virtual reality (VR) software is emerging as an important tool in creative design and for communications with users and clients. This session will explore the current state of the technology and how it can fit into the overall design process. Research into the effectiveness of this tool compared to other methods for client input will be presented along with insights into the future of VR.

- Deborah Wingler, PhD, EDAC, Health Research Lead, Vice President at HKS Architects
November 12 | The Future of Architecture
Current restrictions on travel, group meetings, and office work environments have resulted in radical shifts in the practice of architecture. Are these permanent changes in the way we work, are they temporary “blips” in the design process, or will there be some blend in virtual and traditional practice? This panel will explore the short and long-term implications from an industry-wide perspective and from practitioners leading large and medium size firms.
