How can we be happier at work? How can designers, developers, and tenants contribute to employee retention? In collaboration with Metropolis magazine, the New York studio hosted a standing-room-only Think Tank panel addressing these, and other, questions. Avi Rajagopal, editor-in-chief of Metropolis, moderated a lively discussion between panelists Erik Horvat, Managing Director, Head of Real Estate – Americas at The Olayan Group; Jackie Manzer, Director of Workplace Experience at Convene; Bruce E. Phillips, Senior Managing Director at Tishman Speyer; and Anthony Nelson, Global Creative Leader, ERA-co. This diversity of perspectives made for a well-rounded exploration of the challenges and trends in delivering work/life experiences to tenants and their workforce.
Think Tank is a continuing education series that travels to leading architecture and design firms throughout North America, challenging the industry to examine the strengths and weaknesses of current design-thinking and practice.
