This course examines how our approach to building safer spaces has evolved due to earlier pandemics, epidemics and outbreaks. The course discusses the new face of the office as workers return and design elements to allow for safe and productive collaboration while promoting health and maintaining worker safety. This course discusses everything from seating, to lightening and biophilic elements as well as assessing the role performance coatings play in mitigating future outbreaks.
- Recognize the historic effects of pandemics, epidemics and outbreaks and hygiene and design.
- Use current public health concerns to build awareness of the design potential of safer materials and spaces.
- Study how to compare material types suitable for safer spaces.
- Describe the role performance coatings play in post pandemic spaces and how scrub resistance relates to performance coatings and safer spaces.
