Our ways of working are in flux.
We are preferring more fluid ways of working, and the flexibility to work from anywhere at any time. Our offices are becoming digitalised, therefore spaces (digital and physical) promoting human interaction and serendipitous moments need to come to the fore.
Even-though 'the way we work' is changing for many, in fact according to Citi Foundation (2015), "more than three quarters of global millennials express interest in working for themselves or founding a business", there is still a lack of spaces to collaborate, exhibit our work, nor enough allowances for random encounters.
I live in Stockholm, a city known for innovation. I am, however, still experiencing many closed doors and environments under membership-lockdown. Even-though these spaces are founded on the pillars of collaboration, this exclusivity will only lead to businesses peddling water and, whilst intentions are in the right place, how can true innovation be sustainable, without idea synthesis?
This is a concept based on open innovation, inclusion and transparency.
