Program Info

As we progress to a sustainable future, more architects and designers are pursuing design interventions that embrace retrofitting and reuse. How can this responsive approach be applied to create beautiful workplace interiors that simultaneously cater to the expectations of employees and the functionality of a business? In this highly respected program presented by Artichoke magazine, we hear from three speakers whose projects have achieved this balance.
