Event description

Description

This is a short course run by two of the gurus of the emerging field of workplace science, Dr Kerstin Sailer and Ros Pomeroy.

About the course

The efficacy of open plan offices is a hotly debated topic and sometimes it seems almost impossible to enter the debate with sufficient authority and certainty about the rights and wrongs and the many subtleties involved in successful open plan design.

By taking a step back into the fundamentals of visibility in complex buildings and drawing on academic theories developed at the Bartlett School of Architecture about the impact of visibility on people’s behaviour, the course will enable you to explore the issues surrounding openness and intimacy in workplace settings.

With an emphasis firmly on using evidence and data to inform practice, this half day course, held in an office showroom environment, will enable participants to learn how visibility can be systematically measured and evaluated and then, by applying these principles, to investigate the various ways visibility can affect end users in the workplace.

Your learning

The programme will be highly experiential and participative and will allow time for guided reflection and discussion about the practical application of the knowledge you will have gained. Participants will also leave with a framework for conducting their own ‘visibility audit’.

Who should attend

Everyone is welcome and you don’t have to be a scientist to attend. However, you will probably gain most benefit from this course if you have a role in developing workplace design strategies as a professional end user or as a consultant, you are actively working as a workplace designer or architect or are a specialist in another aspect of workplace design and want to broaden your knowledge. You may also see attending this course as an opportunity to contribute towards your CPD

To enable a high level of interaction, places are limited to a maximum of 20.
