About this Event

Join us for a session where we will explore how the three main pillars of happiness are heavily impacted by the design of our homes, offices, buildings, and cities. Using the Covid-19 pandemic as a backdrop to a new relationship with the spaces we occupy, we will investigate how Architecture can use physical, non-physical, and even more subtle human resources to produce environments that fulfill all our needs including harmony, beauty, and cultural expression.
