Each year the Work Place / Work Life forum explores the seismic shifts happening in workplace design throughout Australia and abroad – from technological disruption to the rise of the sharing economy.

The one-day conference brings together international and local experts, architects and designers to discuss these shift and speculate on the future of workplace design.

This year’s event is happening at the Eternity Playhouse in Sydney on 28 August. 

Speakers will be announced soon.

In a review of last year’s event – which included speakers from across Australia, China, the Netherlands and the UK – Hannes Zirknitzer wrote: “It seems the decision-making roles around optimizing workplaces need to change.

“…A rebalancing towards those closer to understanding the lives of employees, and those who are able to respond to the unique culture and personality of each organization, seems crucial for meaningful innovation – one that can truly create a better connection between the design of ‘work’ and life.”
