Understanding intelligent office installation design for a fast generation
At “The Science of Space”, a recent learning event held in Los Angeles, Liz Burow, WeWork’s VP of Workplace Strategy, and Google designer and former MIT Media Lab researcher Chrisoula Kapelonis discussed how the right office design is more than just visually appealing – it enables you to get work done, keeps you motivated and connects you to your team.
Humans have always used spaces for the same instinctive tasks, such as safety, sleep and community. Burow relates that designing the modern office takes these themes and translates them into systems where people can either retreat – pods, offices or phone booths, for example – or bond with their community.
