Event Description

Across a range of industries, the demand for innovation is necessitating extremely flexible and highly-technical environments. For architects and designers, this reality creates a tough choice between customized versus off-the-shelf solutions. This talk will explore several design projects that present a third way—balancing cost efficiency with smart production tactics. The event will include presentations from two firms with distinct practices—Rafael Viñoly Architects and SITU—who will share how modular and prefabricated approaches are shaping their work, from projects with life sciences institutions to entire tech campuses.

Join us for this program to learn more about these bespoke yet incredibly flexible environments that are paving the way for the future of work.
