Skills Gap: The Future is High Touch

Comparing Millennials to Gen X, baby boomers and now to Gen Z has captivated our attention for quite a while. Maybe I am just tired of hearing about how different we all are. Perhaps I am just lazy and looking for a one-size-fits-all approach (terrible idea - for the record). Regardless, I was thrilled to come across articles and research studies talking about commonality across generations.

Now what?

I regularly spend time reading through carefully curated resources about shifts (disruption some might call it) in the architecture and interior design industry. I have done that many times, and I am usually left with a short list of 3 to 5 topics that we develop into continuing education courses. Our top 5 picks for what should be on your radar if you are a professional architect or interior designer. Shifts that will impact you - eventually - even if they have not trickled down to your practice - yet. For the most part, these picks hold. We deserve no credit. The signs were everywhere - across countless trade publications, conversations, blogs, podcasts, and at trade shows.

Introducing 3 New CEU Topics

We are thrilled to announce three new CEU topics: Modular Interior Design & Architecture, Hospitality Design, and Equity by Design. Why these three topics? After all, "Modular Design*" tends to bring up evil flashbacks to bad things in the 1970s. "Equity by Design*" usually leaves design professionals wondering what we are talking about. When it comes to "Hospitality Design*", it often gets dismissed as irrelevant by those who do not work in that field. We are here to tell you: Modular ain't what it used to, Equity is more critical to your design and architecture practice than ever before, and regardless of the type of projects you work on, things happening in Hospitality Design will seep through.
