Architecture as an enabler of innovation at work

Stephanie Hughes - AKKA Architects
Evi de Bruyne - Center for People and Buildings
Corina Enache - The Sweet Spot

In the DDW edition of the Design for Work events, we will explore architecture-led innovation for organizations. Can architectural process foster something new and creative? How can we enable innovation at work through architecture? Experts from different disciplines will share their experiences with new models of work such as coworking, and the impact of physical space.

'Design for Work' mindset reclaims architecture as an interdisciplinary (or nondisciplinary), democratic and participatory process for organizational sustainability. During the event, AKKA founder Stephanie A. Hughes will speak about the design process at AKKA and how we collaborate with other design fields such as service design.

The capacity of the event space is limited to 50 people.
