The Weekly show: Statue of Liberty Museum, emotional learning in K-12, LA's climate change vulnerability

The October 8 episode of BD+C's "The Weekly" is available for viewing on demand.

By BD+C Staff | October 8, 2020

This week on The Weekly show, BD+C editors spoke with leaders from Buro Happold, FXCollaborative, Perkins and Will, Phelps Construction, and Statue of Liberty–Ellis Island Foundation on three timely topics: 
• Lessons from the award-winning Statue of Liberty Museum project
• Designing for emotional learning in K-12 schools amid COVID-19
• Assessing Los Angeles County's vulnerability to climate change





BD+C's Group Director Tony Mancini runs down the highlights from this week's show. 





The Award-winning Statue of Liberty Museum
BD+C's Robert Cassidy interviews Steve Briganti, President and CEO of the Statue of Liberty–Ellis Island Foundation; Nick Garrison, Partner, FXCollaborative; and Doug Phelps, President, Phelps Construction, on the design and construction of the Statue of Liberty Museum, which won a Gold Award in Building Design+Construction's 2020 "Building Team Awards."




Designing for emotional learning amid COVID-19
BD+C's David Barista talks with Kami Kinkaid, LEED AP, Associate Principal and K-12 Education Leader with Perkins and Will, about how schools are handling "back to school" this fall, including design measures that support emotional learning and small cohort curriculum.




Los Angeles County assesses its vulnerability to climate change
BD+C's John Caulfield speaks with Sabrina Bornstein of Buro Happold, which is leading a climate vulnerability assessment team for Los Angeles County. This is the county's first step in a larger plan to identify which people, places and systems are susceptible to different climate events, and will be the foundation for future action plans by the county.
