Owners from every industry are being challenged to add high-energy, active, engaging, collaborative work environments that attract the best minds, build outstanding teams, and radiate productivity. In this session, leaders detail the design of Harvard’s Pagliuca Life Lab and identify the impact of furniture, technology, spatial relationships, and programming on collaboration and culture in a startup environment. They describe the impacts of building zones intended to create both public and private areas, and how modular design supports group and individual work, flexibility, and offers a quicker solution to space crunches for evolving programs.
