Supplementary work on individual or group basis. Registration subject to prior arrangement for subject matter and supervision by staff.
This course is about using space strategically in relation to business needs. While no businesses succeed based on architecture, many fail as a result of inattention to the power of spatial relationships. The course demonstrates through live case studies with managers and architects the value of strategic space planning, and decision making. We present conceptual frameworks for thinking about architecture, communication and organizations. Thought leaders from industry and academia will introduce the latest ideas in this field. This course meets with 15.994.
