Space configurations and change management processes for the innovation culture

Director of Planning | Design | Construction

This session explores a flexible space framework that enables operational and programmatic diversity, supports collaboration, and sparks innovation. Leandra Davis sets out space configuration details and change management findings from University of Pennsylvania’s Pennovation Center which blends offices, labs, and production space to link intellectual and entrepreneurial initiatives and promote interdiciplinary collaboration across research. She examines processes and strategies used to transition five distinct groups into shared space and amenities, and the productivity and mindset impacts that have resulted. She delivers lessons learned on programming soft spaces, the impact of design on user behavior, scalability and modularity features, and space densities for an array of functions.
