    2020 A+C Festival | Re-Imagining Work / Space / Place

    Tuesday, September 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

    Clive Wilkinson discusses his new book, “Theatre of Work” and Lingxiu Chong, re-examines and re-imagines the nature of work spaces.

    This online presentation with respected architects will re-examine and re-imagine the “work force” and the spaces in which we work. From the whirlwind of changes that Covid 19 has imposed on society and civic life with shelter in place” to the practicalities of location and work spaces, and future directions of industry–what innovations and new perspectives arise?

    Clive Wilkinson, architect, designer, writer and strategist discusses his new book, “Theatre of Work” and Lingxiu Chong, architect, will touch on themes that re-examine and re-imagine the nature of work, the “work force” and the spaces in which we work.
