18 Jun 2020, 5:00 pm – 6:15 pm GMT+2
Know-how session via zoom


Since the onset of COVID-19, the distinction between 'home' and 'office' has blurred for many. Spending most of the day at home means we have more control over when to do what. We can now 'design our days' in a way that wasn't possible in the 9-5 office culture of just three months ago.

As our cities 'reopen', our choices in how we spend our days will expand even more to include where we spend them. A new intentionality will suffuse both our interior spaces and the urban realm through which we travel - why will we be in any given place at any given time?

In this Architects' Know-How Session, Marianthi Tatari from UNStudio and Frank Zimmermann from Object Carpet will speak to the topic of work-place making - instilling a sense of individuality in our home offices as well as the spaces we have to reimagine our relationship to - purpose-built offices, hotels, and entire urban systems.
