Redesigning Design with Lance Hosey, FAIA

As the built environment faces new challenges and opportunities, how will design adapt to become more responsive? Lance Hosey, FAIA, LEED Fellow. Principal, Design Director, Firmwide Co-Leader for Sustainable Design, Gensler, will discuss how to integrate sustainable design strategies, adaptive reuse, and resilience into concept design.

Learning Objective’s

  1. Integrate sustainable design strategies into concept design more thoroughly to improve environmental quality and reduce health risks associated with building energy use.

  2. Apply evidence-based strategies for adaptive reuse.

  3. Assess new project opportunities to determine whether new-build or adaptive reuse is more beneficial in terms of both economics and the resulting human experience.

  4. Articulate broader concepts of resilience to include not just climate adaptation but community, function, and culture as well.
