In recent times, working from home has been inevitable – not just in Denmark, but all around the world. The transition from work at the office, physical meetings and long transportation time to and from work has created a possibility to re-consider the future of work and home offices.
This Tuesday, PLH Arkitekter teamed up with BLOXHUB Urban Partnerships to explore design concepts for the future of dispersed workplaces in Denmark. The workshop united experts from multiple fields: creatives, futurists, specialists, inventors and corporates, as well as international architects and designers from Studio O+A, BatesSmart, M Moser Associates and GoSpace, who all shared their Covid19-stories, virtually. BLOXHUB showed how new ways of collaborating can benefit the sustainable design of our environments, with inspiration and innovation from Denmark.
The challenges of more work from home were explored in the context of the Danish workplace, and how to be inclusive and maintain “workplace happiness” (Danish arbejdsglæde) and company culture. The scene was set for the day’s innovation exercises by Hanne Blume, CHRO HR Director, TDC NET, who shared TDC NET’s pioneering digital collaboration project.
The workshop’s lively innovation process resulted in five visionary concepts that BLOXHUB will publish as a 'white paper' to kick-start new ideas, partnerships and collaborations.
