  • About the event

    The way we work has significantly changed in the past 100 years and continues to change rapidly. From skyscrapers and cubicle farms the workplace has transformed into a ‘latte-and-laptop’ driven culture with rising flexibility and remote working experience. The ‘anywhere works’ trend allows us to bring our ‘home to work’ and the other way around regularly so the office is increasingly no longer necessary for face-to-face interactions.


    The event will begin with the 30-minute documentary that combines a history of the transformation of office design, as well as a look into the behavioural science research on productivity and wellbeing in the workplace. Industry experts will then share their ideas on how the office might continue to evolve in a provocative panel discussion.

    You! Everyone who's ever worked and ever will work has important insights to share. We want your views, ideas, hopes and fears for the future.


    The world of work is changing, it's up to current generations to help share the future workplace and ensure its a sight we want to see.

    The future is in our hands, or is it really?

    Come and join us at the Architectural Fringe and become a part of the conversation to shape the future.

    Why should you sponsor?

    An opportunity to have an impact on society - we aim to engage the audience after they watch the film into an interactive discussion to collect their views on the future workplace and where they want it to be. We will then look forward to publishing the results to make our findings available for a wider audience.
