05.07.20 – Robert Levit talks architecture and isolation with the University of Miami's Carie Penabad

COVID-19 has architects speculating on how cities and architecture might change during the pandemic and in the post-pandemic world. Robert Levit, an associate professor and associate dean at the Daniels Faculty, joined Carie Penabad, director of the Bachelor of Architecture program at the University of Miami, for a conversation (conducted online, naturally) about the effects of the lockdown on how we think about our built environments. Video of their talk is embedded above, or you can watch it on YouTube.

Their encounter was part of "Architecture and the Great Confinement," a video interview series being produced by the University of Miami School of Architecture. Recent participants in the series include another University of Toronto luminary: the Rotman School of Management's Richard Florida.
