The COVID Practice

Understand the ramifications of the “COVID Practice” with four architects from around the country discussing their practice in light of the current worldwide pandemic.


Architectural Practices during the current global pandemic have had much to cope with. Health concerns and social distancing have restructured the way architects are practicing. Staff is now working remotely, limiting the way offices can work collaboratively as well as how younger staff can be mentored effectively. Zoom calls have become the new means of communication with clients and staff while onsite construction administration has required masks and careful coordination to keep contractors, subcontractors, clients, and architects safe on a jobsite. To understand the ramifications of the “Covid Practice”, four architects from around the country discuss their practice in light of the current worldwide pandemic commenting on ways their offices have had to adapt to the pandemic and how these changes have influenced the way they practice architecture. This course brings together the voices of a diverse group of architects with various size practices together to try to make sense of this new world we live in. Hosted by Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN).
