HIGH DESIGN: DESIGNING FOR A NEW CANNABIS CULTURE
It’s 2021, marijuana is now legal in 11 states recreationally, and 33 states for medical use. With its emergence from the shadows of the law, it's getting a total makeover. No area of Cannabis culture has seen (or needed) a bigger change than the interiors of dispensaries. Traditionally, they have been non-designed with a low profile. Now, get ready for chic retail lounges that are supported by a multi-billion dollar industry. This class explores the best practices and considerations when designing today’s modern dispensary. Getting creative with the vibe, we cover topics including strategic merchandising, private space layout, technology considerations, and the significance of the brand experience.
DISTANCING DESIGN: DESIGN SOLUTIONS FOR HEALTHY SPACES
How do we adapt our built environments to provide calm, health and design integrity? In this conversation on designing for the future, we discuss creating community and continuing social distancing. We focus on the psychology and practicality of partitions, queueing, wayfinding, and the safe movement of people. Our industry will be the leaders in developing the new normal in this ever-changing world.
