    The Health and Wellness trend has been growing significantly since 2014 and is now a booming $4.5 trillion business. The move from “sick care” to “well care” has been highlighted by the recent pandemic, and both consumers of healthcare as well as the providers have taken notice. The industry will continue to be transformed by new innovations most evident in new tools, such as robotic surgical tables and intra-hospital delivery drones, as well as the shift to telehealth. These tools will continue to be developed to improve healthcare services and outcomes. Shifts in the improved overall health and wellness of the general population may also influence the services healthcare providers offer, as one would expect a reduction in the rate of diseases that are attributed to poor living habits and unhealthy lifestyle choices. Physical environments will continue to become more inclusive, employing holistic design to address patient needs across multiple health spectrums, including mental and behavioral treatment. Krutarth Jain of Champlin Architecture will explain how design is a catalyst to better patient outcomes through transformation of the way care is delivered.

    The pandemic accelerated changes that were already afoot in both workplace and housing. Companies have decentralized work spaces on a large scale, and the results will fundamentally shift the role of the workplace in our day-to-day lives. And while companies recognize employees can be productive outside the office, the future workplace will remain critical in developing culture, exchanging ideas, and promoting equity across organizations. This has also blurred the qualities of ‘home’, where our residences have become our offices, not to mention schools, restaurants, and gyms. Chad Burke of GBBN Architects will provide insights on how design in the workplace and home can transform the qualities of live work and play.

    A new focus on wellness, community building and cultural awareness is impacting personal and shared spaces, and expectations for both interior or exterior environments in aspects of both project types. Ryan Geismar with Human Nature, Inc. will explain Common Grounds 20/20: the accelerating role of public outdoor space in promoting social, environmental, and economic health. Communities have come together in creative and inspiring ways to pivot the way we gather, recreate, and do business. How can we build upon timeless principles and valuable lessons learned from 2020 to renew our focus on life-affirming ways to support vibrant communities?
