TALK VOL.28 | one design
The architecture of work has an ever-increasing influence on the spaces we inhabit and the cities we live in. Using Squarespace's award winning offices as a central case study, Peter will discuss the design strategies A+I uses to stated mission: Creating user-centered, strategically-driven design; holistically integrating brand, space, experience, and architecture...and what that means for our workspaces and beyond.
APT One Design 践谈大设计
APT One Design is a new event series where architects, strategists, art directors, and brand leadership can get together for an open, multi-channel conversation about finding design solutions in our data-driven, brand-centric economy. Each event proposes a sandbox scenario in which we will revisit built projects and dream up future collaborations.
To kick-off the series, please join architect and strategist Peter Knutson for an evening presentation at A+I's thoughtfully designed studio near Madison Square Park. The architecture of work has an ever-increasing influence on the spaces we inhabit and the cities we live in. Using Squarespace's award-winning offices as a central case study, Peter will discuss the design strategies A+I uses to stated mission: Creating user-centered, strategically-driven design; holistically integrating brand, space, experience, and architecture...and what that means for our workspaces and beyond.
The presentation will be followed by a studio tour and happy hour. Special thanks to A+I and Squarespace for making APT One Design event series possible.
