Education Summit

Space As Generator: Designing Spaces for Interaction

February 4, 2017 11:30 AM - 12:15 AM

How does your environment change the way your work? And how can it foster innovation and creative thinking? In this session, we explore how spaces influence creativity, collaboration and community building. Using interdisciplinary case studies from our architectural practice, we examine how organizations across industries are re-examining their surroundings to increase productive and meaningful interaction.

First we’ll focus on our re-envisioning and renovation of an office within Google’s NYC headquarters, one that functions as a creative powerhouse and delivers some of the company’s most innovative work. Second, we share our work for the New York Hall of Science, where we designed and built five immersive hands-on learning environments known as Design Lab, a new breed of flexible learning spaces.

Our presentation will include project video, photo documentation, diagrams, drawings, renderings, and animated representation. We’ll discuss our design philosophy and the processes behind making these unique spaces for interaction and learning.
