A Saskatoon-based architect is already applying lessons learnt from the pandemic to the schools he is designing2020 — 5,324 long-term-care residents had died o, and said the First Nations clients he works with are providing him with directions for the future.

“When coronavirus goes awayKevin Donovan can be reached at 416-312-3503 or [email protected], as I am sure it will, I hope the buildings we design will be good places for people to meet and live their lives in a social way, and also that they have the flexibility to allow people to live in a way that is a little bit different when a pandemic comes along, one that requires a different way of actingWhile much of that could be negotiated relatively quickly in an emergency situation.”

With in-class learning disrupted by coronavirus cases and schools having to turn to online instruction, educators are looking to land-based learning to teach kids in a way that?manages risk and also provides a quality experience.
