The Weekly show: Universal design in multifamily housing, reimagining urban spaces, back to campus trends

This week on The Weekly show, BD+C editors spoke with leaders from KTGY Architecture + Planning, LS3P, and Omgivning on three topics: 
• Universal design in multifamily housing
• Back to campus: What's working, what's not
• Reimagining urban spaces: Making the old and tired new again





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




Universal Design in Multifamily Housing
BD+C's Robert Cassidy interviews Manny Gonzalez, FAIA, Principal with KTGY Architecture + Planning, on universal design in multifamily housing, based on Gonzalez's AIA CES course: 16 Things You Should Know About Universal Design.




Back to Campus: What's Working, What's Not
With higher education now back to campus, it's time to assess the health and safety measures that the nation's colleges and universities put in place in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Shawn Moorehead Sowers, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Higher Education Practice Leader with LS3P, talks with BD+C's David Barista about how the higher ed sector is handling on-campus learning during COVID.




Reimagining Urban Spaces: Making the old and tired new again
BD+C's John Caulfield interviews Karin Liljegren of the L.A.-based architecture firm Omgivning, which has recently released reports on adaptive reuse for workplaces, multifamily, and urban reprogramming. Karin explains how empty or excess shopping malls, big boxes, ground-floor retail, and light industrial could be put to better use, and even makes the provocative claim that offices and restaurants have commonalities.
