The intelligent evolution of work space
Presentation date: 26. October
Presentation time: 10:15
A growing dependency on (and development of) intelligent technology is the catalyst for the rapid evolution of workspace. In the process, it is changing what designers spend their time doing, and how they need to think. Star Davis will report on what research she and her team are pursuing in parallel with continued collaborations with scientific research institutions that are investigating the physiological impact of light exposure on circadian cycles and human health. These considerations form the backbone of the strategy she and her team have implemented relative to developing lighting standards, spatial programming plus the ongoing testing of their assumptions and conclusions.
