The Amsterdam Agenda, a lecture series by the Academy of Architecture, invites special guests with international perspectives to present their best practices. What can Amsterdam learn from cities like New York, Paris, Shanghai or Istanbul? This evening, architect and urbanist Florian Idenburg (SO-IL) will present his research into the future of our work environment.
Moderated and curated by:
Idenburg is a Dutch architect and co-founder of the award-winning architectural design firm SO-IL in New York City. He is Associate Professor of Practice at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.
He is currently working on a research project on the future of work. The start of the internet emerged some fifty years ago. In the meantime, it has fully disrupted our work environment, to a level where humans will become obsolete. How has the work environment changed over the last five decades, and where will we be heading in the future? In his forthcoming publication by Taschen, with photographs of Iwan Baan, he documents canonical North American workspaces and speculates on the what will be left for humans to do.
