Crossroads

5 October 2014

Crossroads foto websiteA big thank you to everyone who attended Crossroads last week and who made this event possible. With a total of 145 attendees, 4 roundtable guests and 13 speakers from all over the world, the event turned out to be a great success! “We are proud that we found Mariëlle Tweebeeke prepared to act as moderator. She truly took the program to the next level during the roundtable session where all crossroads came together naturally”, Coen van Dijck, partner and managing director at D/DOCK, explains. According to Coen the NOS and Nieuwsuur presenter was the right person to question the rapidly changing world. “I believe that the answer to todays changing world lies within long-term solutions. This was successfully embodied in the event by means of innovative design and smart business cases”, Mariëlle explains.

 

During Crossroads we have heard from many game changers including innovative architects and interior designers, professional healthcare executives, (environmental) psychologists, and researchers and ambitious entrepreneurs. These great minds shared big ideas build around topics as empathy, health and happiness. They all had one common vision: creating a better and sustainable tomorrow by crossing disciplines and joining forces. As Fiona de Vos, one of the Crossroads session speakers, concluded: “you have to go out of your comfort zone to come where the magic happens’.

Welkom in de Zorg

12 May 2014

welkom in de zorg_300X200A hospital can be a place of suffering and confrontation, a place where emotions are often tucked away. The emergence of the Healing Environment contributed to more caring and stimulating healthcare institutions, with design being one of the key factors of this philosophy. But where do we go from here? How can an environment be more emphatic to its users?

 

 

With a focus on emotional connection and trust, Design Director and partner, Francesco Messori, will define the design characteristics of tomorrow’s healthcare facilities during a 30 minutes’ presentation. Please join us at 15:00 o’clock on Wednesday the 14th of May, in theatre ‘Water’ at the Jaarbeurs Utrecht. Don’t forget to register first by clicking this link. Hopefully we will see you there!

 

 

In the press: de Architect

2 May 2014

caravan_website_300x200After the completion of the Google offices in Amsterdam, the Dutch magazine ‘de Architect’ got a tour through the new work environment. A comprehensive report of this day is published last April in this year’s third edition of the magazine. According to ‘de Architect’, Google Amsterdam turned out to be a ‘cheerful urban neighborhood’ with a typical Dutch twist to it. A big compliment we think!
