This week in The Weekly, BD+C the editors spoke with leaders from the Technical University of Dresden, Cooper Carry and Leo A Daly on three important topics:
• Three ways COVID-19 is redefining retail design, from touchless spaces to improved outdoor amenities.
• The world’s first building made from carbon fiber reinforced concrete, a lightweight, thinner and bendable form of concrete.
• Key obstacles faced by higher education officials when reopening campuses for the fall semester.
SEGMENT 1: Alex Lopatynsky, AIA, Director, General Manager, Cooper Carry, on three ways COVID-19 is redefining retail design, from touchless spaces to improved outdoor amenities. 3 themes: “Get out!”, “Limit your experience!” and “Don’t touch me!”
SEGMENT 2: Manfred Curbach, director of the Institute of Concrete Construction at the Technical University of Dresden, talks about the world’s first building made of carbon fiber reinforced concrete, a lightweight, thinner and bendable form of concrete.
SEGMENT 3: Elissa Kellett, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, VP, Global Higher Education Practice Leader, Leo A Daly, on the top hurdles higher education leaders face as campuses reopen for the fall semester. Part of the solution, according to a new white paper written by Kellett and his colleagues, is to organize students into “cohorts” and “micro-communities.”
