Virtual webinar via Zoom
The Impact of COVID-19 on Architectural Design and Practice

Marianne McKenna, KPMB

This presentation will touch on several of the implications being realized as society moves through the COVID-19 pandemic including:
  • virtual collaboration,
  • extreme teaming and the end of the single author,
  • architecture is for humanity,
  • reversal on densification to prioritizing human needs, and
  • renewed appreciation of shared experience.

Born in Montreal and educated at Swarthmore College and Yale University, Marianne McKenna is invested as an Officer of the Order of Canada for creating “architecture that enriches the public experience.” Acclaimed as the architect of the Royal Conservatory TELUS Centre and its iconic Koerner Hall, her projects also include the Brearley School in Manhattan, the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She is currently working on projects for Boston University’s Data Sciences Center, historic Massey Hall in Toronto, and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. 

Registered attendees will receive a personalized link to the webinar on October 5, 2020.
