Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s Year of Gathering series has allowed us to explore the power of architecture and its role in how, when, and where we gather, inspired by our firm’s latest book. With Gathering we shared a new generation of larger scale architecture where people gather to learn, work, meet, and play. Throughout 2020 we’ve explored these scales of architecture – how we, with our clients, developed transformational experiences and, then, what adaptations to consider as we work to stem the spread of COVID-19 and curtail gatherings for the time being. At the heart of all our conversations has been our shared sense of community.
Join us for a conversation with three of our collaborators, all focused on education and community engagement. We’ll discuss how they have re-envisioned their spaces and built community connections over the last several months. Furthermore, we’ll explore how they are thinking about the future. From a visitor’s center in the Poconos to a tight-knit educational community to an urban park with an array of programs, all three are adapting to our current circumstances while placing their community at the center of their vision.
