Description
Rapid and dramatic changes are remaking how we work. The tools we work with have changed and continue to evolve at a break-neck pace. The modern office is adjusting to the “work everywhere” approach. Today systems thinkers who explore all facets of sustainability, accessibility, material innovation, and technology shape the design of everything. The workplace is smack in the middle of this massive rethink.
