AIA CALIFORNIA URBAN DESIGN: LIVE/WORK, WORK/LIVE

November 18, 2020 / 8:00am

"In the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic comes a dramatic shift from commercial office space to the shelter-at-home live/work paradigm. When a home doesn’t necessarily have to be tied to a company’s workplace location, the three-decades old jobs/housing imbalance, overnight, has ended in the zombie/office apocalypse. Learn how Live/Work will permanently transform our physical urban and suburban communities."

EQxD SESSION 2: J.E.D.I. + Health

November 20, 2020 / 11:00am
"The coronavirus pandemic and the disproportionate toll it has taken on BIPOC communities has exposed egregious inequities in our health care systems and the fact that entrenched policies and practices have resulted in negative impacts to the health of those with BIPOC identities. These now urgent concerns about race and health also pull into focus intersectional issues of gender, sexuality, and bodily diversity in relation to the health and healthcare of women and LGBTQIA+, neurodiverse and physical health-challenged identities. How do these issues play out in designed spaces? How can we redesign our cities to provide accessibility, mobility, safety and a sense of belonging to all inhabitants? Can we learn from the principles of universal design to expand our understanding of just, equitable, and inclusive experiences for all? How can we re-examine our work on access to healthcare to address issues of inequity in care? How is the restriction of access to public space and natural environments limited by racist and unjust environmental policies and practices that impact health?"

AIA CALIFORNIA: HOUSING FOR EQUITABLE COMMUNITIES

November 30, 2020 / 12:00pm

"By aligning advocacy conversations and policy objectives with design strategies, new housing solutions can influence how equitably-designed neighborhoods might mature and can provide access to wealth building and healthier, thoughtfully programmed, sustainable, resilient, and environmentally-responsive living patterns more successfully."
