THE WEEKLY SHOW HIGHLIGHTS FOR OCTOBER 15, 2020
BD+C's Group Director Tony Mancini runs down the highlights from this week's show.
Diversity & inclusion in the design profession
Robert Cassidy interviews Camilla Watson, IIDA, and Dana Forfylow, both of ZGF Architects, about their role in the ZGF "Diversity & Inclusion Action Group," and its 5-point plan to address racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual orientation issues, both at the firm and in the larger design community.
AI for building facade inspections
David Barista talks with Badri Hiriyur, PhD, and Grant McCullagh from Thornton Tomasetti about the launch of the firm's latest AEC software tool, T2D2. The software as a service (SaaS) platform uses artificial intelligence (computer vision powered by deep learning) to identify and assess damage and deterioration to building envelopes and structures through images.
Designing a world-class architecture firm
John Caulfield interviews Patrick MacLeamy, the former CEO of the national architecture firm HOK. MacLeamy talks about his new book, “Designing a World-Class Architecture Firm,” and shares his insights about the industry, past and present. Patrick was with HOK for 50 years.
