Repositioning in a Rapidly Growing City
Date: Wednesday, September 27, 2017 | Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm | The Catalyst Loft: 701 Pike St, Suite 2125 Seattle, WA 98101
As development fills South Lake Union, the Denny Triangle, and Pioneer Square, one must inevitably consider what to do with the older office buildings in Seattle’s traditional financial core. These buildings, many of which were envisioned and constructed in the 1970s and 1980s, were built for a different generation and far different conceptions about work. Given the tremendous changes in the workforce and current ideas about work brought on by new technologies, global culture and changing demographics, how do we reposition these aging buildings to maintain their relevance and attract today’s companies? We will discuss how concepts of community, identity, and transparency infuse our approach to repositioning in the city we call home.
The featured speaker for this event is Christopher Beza, Architect from CallisonRTKL. Christopher leads the Workplace Studio in the Seattle office. He has established a wide range of design expertise in retail stores, shopping center and workplace environments across North America, Europe, and the Middle East. He has a deep understanding of what it takes to create user-driven environments.
This event is 90-minutes in length and includes breakfast, presentation, and discussion. Please RSVP below; the event is limited to 40 attendees. We look forward to seeing you.
