“Design for Generations” – a review of our first Scotland-based event by Bureau

Back on Thursday 28th April 2022, the first ever Scottish WOD event was held in collaboration with Bureau in Edinburgh. We’re now excited to share a summary of the event courtesy of the hosts, a short extract of which can be read below;

Four generations in one workspace presents us with a challenge. How do we accommodate the needs of all? Baby boomers nearing or delaying retirement; mid-life Generation X; the largest cohort, millennials; and increasingly, the ​‘digital native’ Gen Z.

We hosted the first Women in Office Design event in Scotland with an expert panel from our female Architecture and Design community. Founder of Women in Office and Design, and Projects Director at K2 Space, Harsha Kotak, put the questions on ​“Design for generations: Humancentric, Diverse and Inclusive workspace’ to Morag Dearsley, Associate at Form Design Consultants: Kim-Marie Bryce, Associate at Michael Laird Architects; Emma Flaherty, Architect at Keppie Design.
