  • Invited Panel: Educational Facilities

    Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture  (ANFA) 2018 ConferenceBetsey Olenick Dougherty FAIA, LEED AP September 21, 2018, La Jolla, CA

    This panel of architects, educators, neuroscientists and researchers will wrap up a day of presentations regarding security facilities, sensory processing, nature and the workplace, and environments that support learning. The focus will be upon a lively discussion of the day’s proceedings, with questions posed regarding the design of educational facilities within the context of safety and security balanced with innovative trends in the design of the educational facilities.

  • Effective Master Planning When Time Is Not on Your Side

    LeadingAge Annual Meeting + ExpoDavid Segmiller FAIA October 29, 2018, Philadelphia, PA

    At this year's LeadingAge Conference, Principal David Segmiller joins a panel to discuss strategies for executing a master plan and the organizational/logistical demands, especially when time is of the essence. The panel will discuss how a single-site organization executed a bold strategic master planning process; ways to align the programmatic considerations involved in master planning with the financial and strategic needs of the organization; and how to guide a board through a long-phased repositioning plan while maintaining a current focus on performance.

  • A Dining Revolution: Meeting the Needs of the NextGen Consumer

    LeadingAge Annual Meeting + ExpoJoseph Hassel IIDA October 29, 2018, Philadelphia, PA

    At this year's LeadingAge Conference, Principal Joseph Hassel joins a panel to discuss how the hospitality industry is staying ahead of the trends in culinary programming and design, and what the senior living industry can do to follow suit. Attendees will gain an understanding of the value of choice, flexibility and aesthetics when designing a culinary experience for the new consumer; and further, will consider ways to assess and transform your community’s culinary experience with ideas informed by examples from other sectors of the hospitality industry.

  • Mixed-Income Communities: Serving Financially Diverse Older Adults

    LeadingAge Annual Meeting + ExpoMartin Siefering AIA October 29, 2018, Philadelphia, PA

    At this year's annual LeadingAge Conference, Principal Martin Siefering will join a panel discussion on mixed-income communities, where topics will include how income differences impact the way older adults age, use space and access services; how specific communities are broadening the network of consumers they serve to include a diversity of income levels; and the main benefits and challenges of creating a mixed-income community that attracts a financially diverse resident population.

  • Senior Living Development: Leveraging Community Connections

    LeadingAge Annual Meeting + ExpoSoo Im AIA, NCARB, LEED AP October 30, 2018, Philadelphia, PA

    At this year's LeadingAge Conference in Philadelphia, Associate Principal Soo Im joins a panel to discuss macro consumer and lifestyle trends in the senior living industry, particularly as they apply to personal development. Attendees will gain insight into recent trends in active adult development and changing lifestyle preferences to better understand the current senior living resident. Panelists will discuss project site selection and design elements that can help maximize connections to the greater community and partnerships with local businesses, as well as look to other industries and their efforts to promote multi-generational and mixed-use opportunities.

  • Trend Minding: Looking Beyond Architecture for Strategic Insight

    Architecture Exchange EastBrian Donnelly AIA, LEED AP November 9, 2018, Richmond, VA

    This session will be a case study into architectural research and the potential to glean strategic insights from sources that are not specifically architectural or environmental, but can inform decisions about planning, programming, and place-making.  Within the framework of Architecture for Education, we will discuss distinct sources of research data and speculate on possible implications to be drawn from their overlap

  • Resilience Tales of Scale: RELi, the City & the Roof Top

    Greenbuild International Conference and ExpoSarah Watling LEED AP ND November 15, 2018, Chicago, IL

    What do an architect, a soil biogeochemist, and an urban administrator have in common? What is the RELi resilience framework and what happens when it’s applied in real life? How can a small-scale project support a city in addressing many of the hardest issues we face in response to increasing shocks and stresses? A panel of experts with real-world resilient design experience will answer these questions and more in this interactive two-hour session. Participants will earn an understanding of RELi and LEED’s Resiliency Pilot credits including how to use them to achieve greater resilience at all scales of the built environment. In 2017, the world experienced more natural disasters than ever making this conversation about resilient design in the built environment critical. These shock-events have cascading effects reaching into, and causing stresses on, systems like socio-economics, politics, food security, and many others. The work of the panelists’ ranges from small to large-scale to demonstrate how responses and efforts scale both up and down these nested interconnected systems. Each contributes to our capacity to bounce back, better and faster, from the ever increasing shocks and stress, environmental, economic and social.

  • Making the Grade: How IEQ in Schools Affects Student Performance

    Greenbuild International Conference and ExpoSean ODonnell FAIA, LEED AP, Katie Herber LEED AP ID+C, ND, EDAC November 15, 2018, Chicago, IL

    What is the most important factor in a successful school? When renovating or building a new school, what do school districts care about the most? Student achievement. This session will explore how high-performance design strategies can have a direct positive impact on student performance, and consequently how this information can be used to justify the value of high-performance design to clients moving forward. The session will present the content of a recent research report that studied schools across the District of Columbia, including recently modernized as well as non-modernized schools constructed across the 20th Century. This study explores both qualitative and quantitative data of each school’s Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) including daylight, thermal comfort, acoustics, and air quality. These data points are then cross compared with various performance metrics from each school to determine which factors did and did not affect student performance. All the sensors used for the study will be available during this session, and live readings will be occurring for attendees to test the Indoor Environmental Quality of the room themselves. Ultimately this study provides the much-needed justification for high-performance schools, showcasing that modernization can have a significant impact on student performance.
