Jill Robertson Live on Global News Edmonton: Post-Pandemic Design

June 28, 2021

Jill Robertson, DIALOG Partner, went live on air with host Lisa MacGregor at the Global Edmonton Morning Show on June 27, 2021, to chat about the impact of COVID-19 on Edmonton architecture, how the pandemic is changing urban design in the city, and how architects, designers and city builders need to respond. 

“One of the takeaways of this pandemic is the importance of design on mental health and wellbeing,” says Robertson. “Who has not been challenged with mental health during this pandemic? With not being able to see our friends and our family. That’s placed a lot more emphasis on creating spaces where we can come together, we can socialize, we can gather safely, and stay physically distanced.”
