About this webinar

Architects and designers are in a unique position to positively impact human health when making design choices that provide opportunities for people to come together. “Designing for Connection in the Third Place” takes a closer look at how design influences opportunities for human interaction, focusing on the role of coffee shops and cafés - often considered third places - to counteract feelings of loneliness and isolation while strengthening social capital. You will leave this session with a deepened understanding of the importance of designing for connection and the key factors to creating inviting and welcoming spaces.
