  • Five Big Ideas from the 2019 Laboratory Design Conference

    Five Big Ideas from the 2019 Laboratory Design Conference

    Our expert laboratory designers attended and presented recently at the 2019 Laboratory Design conference in Orlando, Florida, where the Lab of the Year award winners were also announced. Two inspiring projects were included, with special recognition going to University of Texas at Dallas Engineering and Computer Science West. The overall winner was MIT.nano, a brand-new nanotechnology facility at the Massachusetts Institute of technology. We came away inspired and ready to take on the challenges our clients face when designing modern laboratories to meet the needs of science research and learning.

  • Demystifying the Translational Workplace: Six Strategies for Open Innovation and Knowledge Transfer

    Demystifying the Translational Workplace: Six Strategies for Open Innovation and Knowledge Transfer

    The 21st century has seen remarkable healthcare breakthroughs. These advances are largely driven by the speed at which organizations can translate scientific discoveries to applications that benefit patients and communities. Whereas this process has traditionally been slow and cumbersome, today’s organizations are rethinking their business models and environments to ensure they support each other and generate faster and better outcomes. But simply putting researchers and clinicians in the same building with hopes that serendipitous collaborations will ensue will often not yield the outcomes organizations seek. Based on our experience, we have found that success often depends on building an open innovation ecosystem — a living lab that integrates concurrent research...

  • Earth Day 2019: What Will We Do In the Next 11 Years?

    Earth Day 2019: What Will We Do In the Next 11 Years?

    It has been 49 years since our first Earth Day in 1970. Forty-nine years is quite a run. The passion and awareness ignited during those inaugural events in 1970 have driven significant positive change in our relationship with the natural environment. Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and many will undoubtedly hoist up that number proudly. This year, however, let’s focus on a different number: 11. According to a report released in 2018 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we must halve our emissions by 2030 to avoid a future defined by catastrophic climate change. That deadline is just 11 years away. CannonDesign knows...

    Three Key Takeaways from Bisnow National Healthcare South Conference

    Our team recently had the opportunity to attend Bisnow’s 2019 National Healthcare South conference in late February. The event united a remarkable group of healthcare leaders from Houston and across Texas to share thoughts about what’s next for patients, providers, health systems and communities. There were numerous thought-provoking presentations our team was able to attend, and we’ve summarized some key takeaways from the event below. For each takeaway, we connect ideas around how design will play a role in supporting its impact in the future. Health Systems Recognize Consumers Pay for Value, Not Medical Events A dominant trend echoed multiple times during the Bisnow Summit is the impact consumerism is having...
