This program will showcase evidence of how social science research informs higher performing environments. Experts in designing, managing, and measuring the performance of workplace and retail spaces will present tangible examples of how research-driven design has proven performative outcomes for end users, occupant organizations, and their top and bottom lines. Panelists will discuss their approach to informing design and their process for measuring the performance of design based on human, social, and business outcomes. This conversation builds upon the committee’s ongoing exploration of the value of integrating social science research into the built environment disciplines.
