Designing for the New Era of Work

The Future Life Science Workplace

Gensler’s latest Design Forecast explores how designs focused on adaptability and flexibility are enabling nimble innovation for the sciences industry as it works under the urgent pressure to lead the world out of this crisis. How has the pandemic changed how scientists work, and how can non-lab spaces be converted to spur new scientific hubs? In this session, Gensler’s Sciences leader Justin Cratty presents the key trends influencing science organizations, lab operators, and developers in a post-pandemic world, drawing on key case studies with GSK, JLABS and more.

The Changing Life Science Workplace: Designing to Accelerate Science

This session will share insights from a research report conducted by Genentech and WORKTECH Academy, examining the changing parameters of design for the corporate life science workplace and exploring how workers in the industry can be better supported in the new world of work. Drawing on a mix of academic literature, practice reports and interviews with workplace experts from North America, Singapore, China, UK and Europe, our experts reflect on these findings and share new perspectives on how large bioscience and pharmaceutical companies can foster more flexible, agile & dynamic environments.
