NeoCon Virtual Programs
Experiences at Work: Spaces that Inspire and Unite
May 20, 2021
3:00PM – 4:00PM CDT
David Schwarz, Partner, HUSH, Brooklyn, NY
As we assess the effects of the pandemic, some have predicted the death of the workplace entirely. David Schwarz, however, thinks this death has been greatly exaggerated and that the design of the workplace will take an evolutionary leap, not a mere shift in program. A new model of program and value – one based primarily on qualitative brand experiences that leverage the inspirational scale of architecture, and foster employee collaboration through interaction and technology – will be the light that draws us back. The seeds of this are evidenced in his firm’s work with Uber in creating an interactive lobby experience called The Stream for Uber’s new campus in Mission Bay, San Francisco. This program has been submitted for accreditation and is pending approval.

NeoCon Presents “Designing in a Digital World”
Virtual Programming May 19-20
NeoCon’s spring virtual programming series continues May 19-20 with the timely theme of “Designing in a Digital World.” The four online sessions will address the innovations and challenges within the rapidly expanding digital sphere of design. A precursor to the live event at the Mart in Chicago October 4-6, the series builds off of NeoCon’s 2021 theme “Design Anew” and delivers valuable opportunities for the community to discuss the latest developments and changes impacting the commercial design world.
“From demonstrating how to leverage technology to create meaningful interactions at work to discussing the pros/cons of our 24/7 widespread access to design via digital media and platforms, the May installment will explore relevant issues and provide actionable insight into how to incorporate technology in the most sustainable, effective and beneficial way,” comments Vice President of Marketing for NeoCon, Lisa Simonian.
