In this BOMA article, Kasian Principal Will Craig discusses the long-term effects of the pandemic on the future of design in downtown real estate and how property professionals must optimize their offerings in a post-pandemic world.


Will explores the delicate balance of human and technology in order to create social connected spaces. He uses Kasian’s Lifescape Institute as a case study that provides inside-out design with the powerful intention of expanding a sense of purpose, enabling a vibrant corporate culture, encouraging workplace interaction, and fostering individual human potential.
