Shelter in Place: How the Pandemic is Changing our Cities, Neighborhoods and Homes
Kit Krankel McCullough
Many of us are thinking about how the pandemic will impact our lives going forward. This includes architects and designers who are imagining the changes that the
pandemic will bring to urban spaces, neighborhoods, and homes. Kit Krankel McCullough, an architectural and urban designer and faculty member for UM Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, will discuss some of the ways our surroundings are adapting to post-pandemic life and provide us with an inside look at what might be in our not- so-distant future.

Through her urban design practice and teaching, Ms. McCullough advocates for equitable and socially just development, healthy and sustainable environments, strong communities, and cities that promote well- being and happiness. At UM, she teaches design studios on housing and neighborhood development, seminars on transportation and urban economics, and a popular lecture course on real estate development for architects and planners. She has developed urban design
and economic strategies at a range of scales and led urban design projects in cities around the country. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and her Master of Architecture in Urban Design from Harvard University.
