The global pandemic has drastically altered what it means to work, socialize, and even prepare a meal. People who barely knew how to turn on their oven started experimenting in the kitchen; others, accustomed to dining out, found themselves food prepping for weeks at a time; and many families, partners, or roommates are once again gathering together at meal times. Among these impacts, the pandemic has changed the way we live at home, including how we utilize kitchens, home offices, and technology. This course will explore the evolution of the kitchen and the impact of COVID-19, how to leverage kitchen design to improve wellness, and how appliances in the kitchen and home office are playing a role.  

This free live course is brought to you through a partnership with Sub-Zero. By registering for this course, you grant AIA permission to share your name and email address with Sub-Zero.
