Key Themes



The Future of Workplace Wellbeing

Explore how the world of work has transformed in light of the coronavirus pandemic and the impending Recession in the context of workplace wellbeing.

Innovative Workplaces

In rapidly changing environments where workers face unforeseen problems and businesses confront new challenges, the most valuable form of work is creating value. To give your organisation a competitive edge, key insights from the latest research will show you how to empower your people and reimagine your workplace.



High Performance Workplaces

Describing the key factors in workplace design as visibility, light penetration and communication potential; we explore how computational workplace tools, data analytics, sensor technology, and smart algorithms will impact how we design and what we design, to help shape the workplaces of tomorrow.

Why Innovation Requires Physical Space

The global Covid pandemic has taught us all a lesson in flexibility, showing that indeed we can work from home. Yet what is missing, when no one meets in unplanned ways, is creative friction and opportunities for the unknown to unfold.



Smarter Technology: A Global Perspective

The way we live, work, and play is very different today than it was just a few decades ago, thanks in large part to a network of connectivity that now encompasses most people on the planet. In a similar way, today we are at the beginning of a new technological revolution: The Internet is entering the physical space – the traditional domain of architecture and design – becoming an “Internet of Things” or IoT.

Applied Intelligence and Designing for the Future

The future of work is not just about AI, automation and The Singularity. It’s also about getting the most value out of human qualities that computers can’t emulate -the desire to explore, to create, to play. It’s a future in which technologies and humans interact to discover brave new worlds, possibilities and futures together.
