Join the AIA's Regional and Urban Design Committee ( for a series of timely conversations intersecting public health and urban design.  For three consecutive days, interdisciplinary experts will discuss how the current health crisis is impacting traditional notions of urbanism, and what challenges and opportunities the design profession has to address the pandemic. The first session brings together four national practitioners in architecture and urban design to advance novel implementation strategies at the scales of the building, block and city.  The second session highlights perspectives from leading academics about how our interactions with the world shape health, well-being and behaviors. The third session provides policy insights underscoring the ways in which the pandemic is affecting our most vulnerable populations both globally and here at home.
