STUDIOS Salons: Conversations About Our Rapidly Changing Landscape

DATENovember 13, 2020

2020 has been an unforgettably eventful year for people everywhere. However, amongst the chaos and uncertainty, it also marked STUDIOS' 35th birthday. As we reflect back on all the years, projects, and invaluable clients we've had the privilege of working with, we couldn't be more proud of where we are today and optimistically look towards a future of continued inclusion, evolution, success. 

STUDIOS had the great pleasure of hosting several clients for a series of Virtual Salons to discuss some critical issues that have impacted all of us in light of the COVID-19 pandemic; shedding light and bringing a different perspective on the topics of Education, the Importance of Open Space, and Inclusion, during these unprecedented times.


Today we are facing disruptions caused by COVID-19. As with all disruptions, we've been forced to visit our assumptions, and adapt; and while it's easy to focus on the challenges, we have also been given an opportunity for growth and new thinking.


The American experience is born in the pursuit and shaping of open space by people who bring to open space the power of an open mind. As designers, we look to the present to imagine the future and see open space as a canvas upon which we can express ourselves.


One of the distinct characteristics of architectural design is its unspoken impact on people's lives. A discussion is long overdue around physical space, its designers, and the nature of their process, and the composition of voices that contribute to the outcome.
