The global health crisis of the coronavirus pandemic has overturned every moment and corner of our day-to-day lives. In this new micro-series, Shop Talk: Home Work, we turn to our network of friends, colleagues and collaborators for comfort and community, and discuss how they’re adapting to work and life in this unprecedented era of uncertainty.
This week, we chat with Dan Weissman about how he’s finding a balance and routine between working and parenting at home, as a senior associate who manages multiple projects and junior staff, and as a husband and father of two young kids, ages 2 and 4.
Dan leads the firm’s research and development efforts which includes a variety of academic, technology, and conceptual-based initiatives. In addition to his professional practice, Dan has also taught lighting and daylighting courses at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and published numerous articles and peer-reviewed daylighting research. In 2018, Dan was named as one of 40 under 40 international lighting designers by Lighting Magazine.
