About Trends + Tensions

In Trends + Tensions, we explore the inherent conflicts between emerging trends and longstanding traditions in higher education, retail, and workplace design and architecture, and the impact those have on the places where we all learn, shop, work, and live.

With contributors from top companies across industries—like Fifth Third, Messer Construction Co., Central Washington University, and more—Trends + Tensions brings a wealth of perspectives on architectural and design topics.

Host of Trends and Tensions Brian Trainer

Host and strategist Brian Trainer guides conversations with expert contributors from BHDP and our clients as they dive into real-world problems and uncover how architecture and design can help solve them.
