Responding to COVID-19 Through Design

As the world adopts new ways of working, learning and living in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SmithGroup is helping our clients and communities respond with a future-focused attitude about the immediate and long-term implications. This includes converting a convention center into a hospital decompression site, mobilizing public-private partnerships, and using 3D printing to create shields for healthcare workers. We are also adapting the way we work, utilizing new tools to succeed in a virtual environment, and sharing best practices for online design development and public engagement. As we take immediate actions in relation to this global crisis, we also seek to Design a Better Future that brings enduring value to our clients and communities, and helps us prepare for and create what comes next.
