Tune in for The Weekly at 1:00pm Eastern on Thursday, July 16: https://horizontv.bdcnetwork.com.
SOCIAL MEDIA ‘INFLUENCERS’ AND INTERIOR DESIGN
Christine Vandover, IIDA, NDIDQ, LEED AP, Senior Project Interior Designer at architecture firm HOK, will chat with Robert Cassidy, Executive Editor of Building Design+Construction, on the impact—good and bad—of social media “influencers” like Marie Kondo and HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” on professional interior design.
HOK's Christine Vandover: "Influencers" like Marie Kondo are impacting professional interior design practice.
Vandover, a 25-year veteran of office and healthcare interior design work, will discuss her concerns about the sometimes negative perceptions that “influencers” can have on clients, notably the implication that sophisticated and complex projects can still be completed practically overnight, just as home renovations appear to be done on television.
Vandover, who has an intense interest in fashion and has volunteered for years at New York’s Fashion Week, will also describe instances where she has been positively influenced by social media—leading to some exciting ideas for projects for her workplace and hospital clients.
NEW CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD “WORKPLACE” ANALYSIS
Bryan Berthold, Managing Director of Workplace Strategy & Change Management in Cushman & Wakefield's Strategic Consulting practice, will converse with Building Design+Construction Senior Editor John Caulfield about C&W’s latest report, “The Future of Workplace.”
The study, based data from a recent survey of more than 50,000 respondents around the world, provides insights into how employees are coping right now with the coronavirus pandemic.
Berthold will discuss how employees working from home have been able to maintain their productivity, even as their employers would prefer them to return to the office in order to sustain the company’s “culture.”
Cushman & Wakefield's Bryan Berthold will reveal highlights from C&W's new report on "The Future of the Workplace."
Berthold, an architect with more than 20 years’ experience, will also have some surprising information on how younger workers are faring with remote working.
HEALTHCARE DESIGN AFTER COVID-19
The program will conclude with Chris Naughton, AIA, Healthcare Practice Leader at HMC Architects, who will be interviewed by BD+C Editorial Director David Barista.
Naughton, with 30 years as a healthcare architect, will explore the long-term impact of COVID-19 on healthcare design, from the rise of telehealth and telemedicine to the integration of technologies for identifying and tracking infectious patients.
Chris Naughton, HMC Architects: “Healthcare facilities are going to function much differently in a post-COVID-19 world."
