Event description

June’s meetup brings a subject we haven’t approached for a while, design in the physical space. This session asks the question, how might a large organisation prototype not only the layout, but every aspect of a new office environment, allowing the users of that test system to shape changes for continuous experimentation and validation. Join us to find out more!

Physical prototyping to design a future workplace

A team from AMP will share how they used physical prototypes in real office spaces, to help design and develop the future workplace for its employees. They explore the concept of an organic test and learn environment, where employees are expected to adopt an experiential mindset and contribute to the future design of their workplace.
