In BOMA‘s January/February 2020 edition, our Calgary Principal and Global Lifescape Team Chair, Will Craig, seeks to expand our design thinking by looking at both the software and hardware of place to create curated environments for the human experience.
As social beings, we continue to crave person-to-person connections even when technology has offered us the convenience of developing business and personal relationships online. By looking beyond the singular dimensions of space, commercial real estate owners, operators, and designers can holistically adapt and curate the built environment to create socially connected spaces, inside and out. Along with direct value and financial rewards that such spaces can afford, we can pioneer urban environments that insert moments in our everyday circumstances — moments that compel the human behaviour and connect us with our sense of curiosity, intrigue, and social connectedness.
