POSTPONED: Year of Gathering: Building Community and the Contemporary Workplace



About this Event

Celebrate Gathering, our new monograph that focuses on our institutional, civic, and commercial work. We’ve long believed it is important for us as humans to come together in exceptional places that foster connection and enhance our sense of shared community. This is Gathering.

Building Community and the Contemporary Workplace

Advances in technology have contributed to remarkable shifts in the physical, social and cultural spheres of the contemporary workplace. This has led to experimentation and exploration in defining the spaces where we work. Beyond flexible floor-plans and determining whether to embrace an open office plan, it’s about how and when we’re simultaneously connected and isolated in our work. Even with an open plan or hotdesking approach, with all the potential for serendipitous connections, there’s an increased need for designated places for collaboration and community. Why? How do we create workplaces that allow for the alone / together paradox and allow for employees to find a sense of community?

Join Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Kaiser Family Foundation, CBRE, and Square for a provocative discussion moderated by Tom Direnzo about the contemporary workplace.
