Are you ready to design and build a field hospital in 10 days? In this virtual session, the panel will share two case studies, sharing the details behind the alternative care facilities built at Wisconsin State Fair Park Exposition Center and Milwaukee House of Correction.

This time it was COVID, a global pandemic coming to our shores and our communities. Next time it might be an earthquake, a hurricane, a tornado or a different health crisis. The only certainty is that like any catastrophic event, the severity of the situation and the required response will be unpredictable, undefined and rapidly evolving. How can you be ready as a designer to answer the call at your fullest potential when the situation arises?
