Film Program: Workplace

Friday, February 23, 2018
6:00 PM - 7:45 PM

Workplace_adfilmfest_2018_preview.pngWorkplace is a documentary about the past, present and future of the office. Hundreds of millions of human beings spend billions of hours in offices every day. How can we make them better places for people to work and collaborate? What’s the next wave of digital tools to connect the office, the city and the planet? How has the office evolved over the last 100 years? And do we even need offices anymore? Filmmaker Gary Hustwit (Helvetica, Objectified, Urbanized) follows the design and construction of the New York headquarters of R/GA, where the company and architects Foster + Partners explore the intersection of digital and physical space. Workplace is a look at the thinking and experimentation involved in trying to create the next evolution of what the office could be. Appearances by Bob Greenberg, Norman Foster, Nick Law, Barry Wacksman, Chris West, Julia Goldberg, Primo Orpilla, Nikil Saval, Amanda Carroll, and more.
