When the World Health Organization designated this as the “Year of the Nurse,” they had no idea what the year would hold in store. Nursing has always been tough work, but this year nurses are finding themselves on the front lines of a global pandemic, and the emotional toll is yet to be fully realized. Yet, they keep showing up for society to deliver compassionate care with extraordinary skills while bravely risking their lives, as well as their family’s lives. For this, we are immensely grateful.
My interview took place before COVID-19 took over our lives. It was a 100% normal meeting: I walked in, sat in a conference with multiple people, and talked without masks or social distancing. Maybe 1 or 2 weeks after that meeting, I received...
It took me many years to slowly crack Chapter 16, Section 1613 of the International Building Code along with its reference standard ASCE-7 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.

Earth Day 2020: I am sitting in my office (currently a room upstairs at my home) thinking about the current pandemic and similarities with climate change - a slower global crisis but with even higher stakes. Like the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change will affect everyone regardless of social or economic standing. It can’t be seen by the naked eye or easily anticipated, so we rely on the scientific community to warn us of its emergence

Can architectural space be more than subjectively beautiful? Are there objective realities in the built environment that cause humans to elicit certain responses of well-being or fear, stress or relaxation, pain or pleasure?
