New Working Neighborhoods
New working districts are evolving in major cities across the world, with hubs of talent and creativity taking shape beyond the center. How are New York and London transforming their neighborhoods to accommodate new ways of working?
With The Collective driving the co-movement in London at Old Oak Common and the Brooklyn Tech Triangle becoming a cluster of innovation in technology and manufacturing, there is a convergence between how we live, work and play. But are we ahead of the curve, or do we need to do more to create city space for future generations of employees?
We are thrilled to announce that AIA NY will host this tenth NY-LON Simultaneous Seminar at the Centre for Architecture in New York, joining New London Architecture as partners in this series which is a key part of our Global Exchange program, championed by KPF.
