Online Master Class: “Codesigning Workspace: The future for collaborative environments”

The IE Master in Work Space Design presents the Online Master Classes series. 

Introducing: “Codesigning Workspace: The future for collaborative environments” with Oliver Marlow from Studio Tilt.

Collaboration is by its very definition about people, and about transforming their relationships with one another. Using space as a way to transform these relationships is at the heart of a collaborative environment: It needs to be open, inspiring, collegiate and creative. Designing workspace is changing too, to keep up. Without the user at the heart of workspace design a space will suffer in its conception. But fostering and harnessing these values as the space evolves is the crucial next step to the environment of the future, remaining adaptable, interactive, and iterative. How do we do this? What is the future of the collaborative environment?

Date: June 25, 2013. 17:00 Madrid.
Speaker: Oliver Marlow, Studio Tilt. Professor at Master in Work Space Design.

Another Pamphlet, Symmetry no.05 Launch Event

© Another Pamphlet

Above all, another pamphlet is a conversation, a loose exchange of forms and ideas, an excuse to play, a frame through which to look, a shared excitement. It is an open dialogue with our friends, our histories, and our surroundings. Meaning both “more of the same” and “something different”, “another” contains the seeds of both continuity and change. Another pamphlet mines this contradiction – this tension between past and future – opportunistically interrogating, critiquing, and celebrating the discipline of architecture. Their latest issue, Symmetry no.05, was just released and they are having a launch event this Thursday, May 2, from 6:00pm-8:00pm at Printed Matter, Inc. in City. For more information, and to order a pamphlet, please visit here.
