AnnaMarie Bliss is a lecturer in Architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign teaching design studios, foundational design principles, history and theory, and research methods for environmental designers. Her scholarship concentrates on health and well-being in design. Dr. Bliss is also the founder and principal of Bliss Historic Preservation and Consulting, a historic preservation architecture firm. Her research and practice projects address the socio-spatial and haptic aspects of preservation design triggering changes in the environmental perception of users and how health sciences play a role in design development. Dr. Bliss has been awarded national and international recognitions for her work including the Alpha Rho Chi Medal of Honor, the P.E.O Scholar Award, and the King Medal for Excellence and the 2020 Dissertation Award from the Architectural Research Centers Consortium. Dak Kopec is an architectural psychologist and associate professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Dak has authored several books and is credited with researching, developing, and administering the first low-residency graduate program focused on designs for human health at the Boston Architectural College. He has also served as a visiting professor at the University of Hawaii with a joint position in schools' architecture and medicine. In 2017, he won IDEC's Community Service Award for the design of a group home for people with developmental disabilities and early-onset dementia. Today, Dak is calling upon his diverse educational background in health sciences, psychology, and architecture to promote interdisciplinary and person-centered design.
