BRANDING: HOW TO CREATE A CULT-LIKE FOLLOWING
Tuesday, June 12 • 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Designers today know how crucial a successful brand is to their practice. Our speaker will outline a winning approach to branding, focusing on the particulars by first creating the big-picture architectural concept. From this layered concept, our speaker will illustrate how to design everything from custom furniture, rugs, wall coverings, lighting, accessories, art and even the uniforms and food service style.

MOVING BEYOND OPEN PLAN
Tuesday, June 12 • 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Recently, design articles have called into question the effectiveness of open plan workspaces. This session addresses this question. We’ll investigate how companies determine the right solutions that match the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce; combat the traditional models of space delivery; and create a great experience for teams while avoiding the homogenization of pre-packaged co-working solutions. In doing so, we’ll look at one solution, immersive environments. Such environments pull the best lessons learned from work spaces—including open plan, co-working, ABW, NCE and MEMO—and tailor them to meet the specific needs of tailored spaces. [INTERMEDIATE][FOD][OF][PD]

THE TRUE MEASURE OF A SPACE IS HOW IT MAKES US FEEL
Tuesday, June 12 • 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Historically, there have been various ways to measure how well the design of an interior space works. Now, in this volatile economy, the metric may be the ability to fit as many people and desks into as little real estate as possible, and thus, humanizing or stylish touches may have to go. Such determinants have a rightful place among the tenets of design, but it is certainly possible to reconcile economic necessities with design that’s intelligent, interesting and human-centered. In our workshop, we’ll investigate the various ways that every element of interior design—the shape of the space, the color of walls and the arrangement of furniture—is laden with messages. Each element speaks to certain values, and each one gives cues for behavior. Taken together, they suggest and invite a way of working, learning or socializing. The session will also look to the future, exploring how offices designed over the next 10 years will continue trends toward individual empowerment and add to them the force multiplier of predictive technology. [INTERMEDIATE][OF]

CAN DESIGN HEAL? CURING SICK ZIP CODES WITH COMMUNITY-BASED HEALTH CARE
Tuesday, June 12 • 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
With only a ZIP code, an epidemiologist can accurately predict the lifespan and health challenges of the people living within its boundaries. In underserved communities, healthcare resources are often limited, contributing to shorter lifespans, chronic health issues and decreased quality of life. In our seminar’s case study, we’ll uncover how one healthcare organization approaches this challenge differently. They employ a network of health centers closely integrated into the social fabric of each neighborhood to provide comprehensive health care services. Participants will learn how the organization studied whether the intentional design of a waiting room could affect patient attitudes and health outcomes. [BASIC][HC][HSW]

PIONEERS OF INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING; TRACKING THE HEALTH OF YOUR DESIGNS IN REAL-TIME
Tuesday, June 12 • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Human health has become a primary concern for our industry. Participants in our workshop will discover how programs are asking the FF&E community to adhere to new rigorous standards for transparency and VOC (off-gassing). Although the furniture industry has for years been subject to tests accounting for the off-gassing of their products, unawareness and misinformation still abounds when it comes to the IAQ of buildings themselves post-occupancy. One pointed question we’ll address is: Are we missing the bigger picture? Using a case study, our three experts will illustrate how they applied a new standard to track IAQ in real-time and are using the results to advance our collective knowledge for healthier buildings. [BASIC][GR][FT][HSW]

THE NEW K-12 SCHOOL LIBRARY
Tuesday, June 12 • 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
Libraries today in K-12 facilities are more commonly being referred to as a Media Commons. The library’s sole focus of providing a quiet place to study and keep books on hand is changing. Libraries are now serving students in a multitude of purposes. Books are still being stored, but now technology is too, students are encouraged to stay and socialize, even loudly, and “the maker space” trend is making an impact. The library turned media commons is becoming the heartbeat of the school once again. In this seminar we will discuss all the varied functions the libraries now serve, how to work with your client to determine the programming they want to include, organizing furniture to utilize the available square footage, and how to make the library/media commons the heartbeat of the school once again. [INTERMEDIATE][PS][INST]

EXPANDING OUR PERCEPTION, PREPARING FOR EXPONENTIAL INNOVATION: DESIGNING FOR SINGULARITY
Tuesday, June 12 • 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
As we speculate about the future of design, we find inspiration in voices that interpolate between reality and futurism. A leading voice is Ray Kerzweil’s. Our speakers will investigate his concept of singularity, in which exponential and ever-accelerating innovations in technology blend humans and computers into an infinitely smarter, faster, more effective and creative world. Our speakers will also share key concepts behind singularity, and how those ideas will impact buildings and the exploration of future environments. We will look at nanotech, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and machine learning, among other concepts, to demonstrate how these exponential innovations will transform the future of design. Lastly, our speakers will provide key take-away ideas that we as designers can explore immediately to make our designs more adaptable. [INTERMEDIATE][FOD][FT]

FROM EXCESS TO EVERYDAY, THE EVOLUTION AND DEMAND FOR LUXURY
Tuesday, June 12 • 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Luxury used to mean flashy jewels and five-star hotel; or, in another word: indulgence. But the word luxury has morphed beyond high price points. It has transcended excess, now encompassing something less tangible. Today, luxury is simplicity, uniqueness and all about our experiences. Attendees will learn which materials, finishings, fixtures and other elements and details help to create a unique experience, thereby infusing a sense of luxury—and not just for the elite. Participants will glean which details and products to incorporate into a luxury design that some may say are trending but are in fact becoming a norm. [INTERMEDIATE][RES]
