3:15 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Impactful Design Plans for a Growing Gen Z, Aging Millennials and Gen X Workforce
Designing for various generations that have very different ideas of what they consider a lab that is conducive to their research success can be quite challenging. Are open space formats really what the Gen Z and Millennials prefer or is the market moving back to closed working spaces? Do soft and social spaces draw in the best talent or are cappuccino and ping-pong courts a waste of valuable square footage?
In this session, our panelists will discuss:
