This week on the blog we wanted to recap our first mentoring session in our “Architect Up! Life Hacks for Architects” series. We had the opportunity to tour the WeWork and WeLive spaces in Crystal City which showcase the concepts of communal working and living. The WeLive space is one of two that currently exists in the country.
Following the tour we sat down to discuss how these new concepts of work/life balance have impacted productivity and what it means for the design of office spaces. The community manager Alissa Avilov and architect Vinson Camacho weighed in based on their experiences with the programs.
Next up in the series we will be discussing how to harness the power of social media and branding. Register for the second session here.
