JULY 2020

A Celebration of Diversity in Design

A month (and beyond) dedicated to honoring and encouraging diversity in the A&D industry.


Around the World in Projects

This month, we will take our readers around the world with a variety of project profiles. How does workplace design differ from country to country? What can our readers takeaway from these projects and incorporate into their own? 


Product Manufacturing

Many of the thought leaders in our industry come from the major manufacturers with large and innovative R&D teams. Many of the most creative product introductions come from smaller manufacturers seeking to distinguish their products from the larger pack. Did you ever wonder how a product goes from idea, to concept to deliverable? We do all the time and are looking out for the stories behind the products that will hit the market soon.

What are the key factors driving today’s and tomorrow’s designs? Sustainable materials? Who is pushing the envelope for material innovation? Textiles/ Flooring/ Seating/ Desking? Block Chain? Tariffs? Work Styles? Fast Fashion? Working Outdoors? Let’s find out more about the process behind the great designs we see for workplace design.


Change Management

Making changes in the workplace can be very stressful for employees. How can change management experts keep the drama to a minimum and plan for the inevitable ups and downs?

Thinking about the following quotes, is there a great story about a project where a change management plan led to a successful transition from an old style of working to a new workplace design?

“People don’t resist change. They resist being changed!” —Peter Senge
“People are very open-minded about new things, as long as they’re exactly like the old ones.” —Charles F. Kettering
“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” —Deepak Chopra


Celebration of Brand and Culture 

Let’s talk about user experience and how that is one of the biggest issues in workplace design and planning. 

  • How does space reflect brand and culture?
  • Do you have a project that exhibits how companies can use their workspace as a tool help create and enhance their corporate culture?
  • What are “experiential graphics” and how do you integrate them into the workplace?
