Multistudio Contributes to AIAKC’s Strategic Action Initiative CharterJanuary 13, 2022
A Healthy Divergence: Creating more with less through a well‑being lens
In early 2021, Multistudio’s Doug Hurt, Tabitha Darko, and Nicolas Bock joined the AIA Kansas City’s Strategic Action Initiative Charter committee, and National Managing Principal Anthony “Tony” Rohr joined the steering committee. The committee was tasked with identifying potential disruptors to the architecture profession.
“While there were many to consider, it became apparent that several disruptors were being driven by or accelerated by the ongoing pandemic, and our collective response would be a critical opportunity. Rather than react as the world moves forward, we proposed to clarify impacts, ask questions, and devise proactive suggestions to lead the transformation. Three primary, overarching impacts were identified:
- Technological advances and accessibility
- Design process and workflows
- People-focused leadership
From these meetings the first Strategic Action Initiative Charter was identified.”
