• Modify an existing building or site to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission;
• Develop a new project or strategy to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission; or
• Adapt a space to provide healthcare for COVID-19 or other patients.

Architects can submit COVID-19-related projects for consideration.

MBB School Reopening Case Study Report   2.22MB   1 version
Uploaded - 10-09-2020
Reopening a school during a global pandemic presents a countless number of challenges and choices, each of which can potentially have a profound impact on the experience of the students, families and staff that make up the school’s community. Any approach to reducing the risk of exposure for this community requires prioritization and adaptation based on institutional values. In partnership with school leadership, MBB took a mission-centered approach to these challenges, prioritizing those solutions that reflected the values of the community, the identity of the institution and best facilitated the ongoing mission - through this pandemic and into the future.
