Hear from three local design teams – Envirocollab, Graham Projects and Living Design Lab – who are working to adapt public spaces for COVID-19 and how Baltimore’s Design for Distancing program can serve as a model for other cities. This program is presented in partnership with Neighborhood Design Center, AIA Baltimore/Baltimore Architecture Foundation, the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (MD ASLA) and the Baltimore Museum of Industry.

Design for Distancing is a program of the City of Baltimore, Office of the Mayor and the Baltimore Development Corporation, in partnership with local nonprofit the Neighborhood Design Center. Developed in the summer of 2020 in response to COVID-19 and the challenges faced by local businesses, the Design for Distancing program called on Baltimore’s world class design and public health communities to develop innovative approaches to safe, physically distant gathering.
