Designing for Meaningful Human Connection on FolkU @89.5FM

What do our lives, spaces, and buildings look life if we were to prioritize connection? On Friday December 30, Bruce Haden joined host Manda Aufochs Gillespie to discuss his career as a designer, thought leader, and author focused on the power of spaces, organizations, and institutions to create powerful, transformation change through prioritizing the potential of human connection.

This will be a wide ranging discussion on elements of design and architecture, men’s groups, human experience, and more.

Bruce Haden, AP, besides being a part-time Cortesian, is an architect and principal of Human Studio, which he co-founded in 2017 with Peter Atkinson. The firm focuses on using outstanding design to enhance the quality of human relationships, and is committed to enhancing built and social infrastructure resistance to the challenges of climate change. Human Studio’s work currently includes multiple B.C. housing projects, Indigenous cultural and housing projects, and post-secondary and cultural projects.
