Is remote working the new normal? HMC Architects’ Managing Principal Kristina Singiser, AIA, LEED AP, DBIA will explore this question and more along with a panel of industry professionals in a virtual roundtable hosted by the American Institute of Architects’ Los Angeles Chapter (AIALA) Practice Committee. The roundtable discussion will focus on the future of remote work in architecture and will discuss how the industry has adapted to remote working, the effect on client engagement, and what will remain post-pandemic.

As the managing principal of HMC’s Los Angeles studio, Singiser is responsible for the studio’s strategic direction and overall performance. Since joining HMC in 2013, she has earned an amazing reputation with the clients she serves in the firm’s higher education market and has a strong background in student housing and has worked on several academic buildings for community college campuses. Since March 2020, HMC’s 350 employees and seven studios have been working from home, with the Los Angeles studio being one of the first to transition.

The virtual event will be held on zoom on February 16 and moderated by CO Architects’ Senior Associate Lauren Coles and AECOM’s Design Manager and Strategist Jessica Orlando. Singiser will be joined by HOK’s Director of Architecture Aviviah Rapoport, Fred Fischer and Partners’ Marisa Kurtzman, and CO Architects’ Managing Principal Scott Kelsey.
