THE WEEKLY SHOW HIGHLIGHTS FOR NOVEMBER 5, 2020
BD+C's Group Director Tony Mancini runs down the highlights from this week's show.
Designing Cannabis Facilities
BD+C's Robert Cassidy talks with Sam Andras, AIA, Senior Principal and Partner with 2WR and Partners and MJ12 Design Studio, about the art and science of designing cannabis cultivation (or "grow") facilities and dispensaries. "Grow facilities" are very complex and have to be designed to account for numerous factors: lighting, air flow, irrigation, odor prevention, security, and the number and spacing of the plants. The most successful dispensaries "tell a story" about the brand the owner is trying to portray.
Bob Borson's Life of an Architect
BD+C's David Barista sits down with architect, designer, podcaster, and blogger Bob Borson, FAIA, to discuss the origin of the highly popular Life of an Architect podcast, the launch of Borson's new residential architecture studio, the market outlook for custom residential construction, and what's hot in residential design amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of the work from home (WFH) culture.
Museums and Risk Mitigation In An Era of Climate Change
BD+C's John Caulfield interviews Andrew Barwick, a Senior Associate with design firm Cooper Robertson, about risk mitigation for museum projects. Barwick discusses two museums—The Whitney in New York and Princeton University Art Museum in New Jersey—that demonstrate resilient design trends and how museum projects are responding to evolving climate change conditions. Barwick also touches on how Cooper Robertson often finds itself collaborating with several design firms on museum projects.
