Paperworld 2018 - Future Office - Frankfurt am Main


Meeting point office of the future - Today more than ever before, creating a good office workplace is a challenge for planners. The demands on the working environment have increased enormously in recent years. Not least, the digitisation of work has simplified many tasks and made others superfluous, but it also requires a new infrastructure. Furthermore, the ongoing digitisation of buildings allows conditions at one’s workplace that could hardly be more individual. Architects, interior designers, designers, clients, and facility managers - they all come together in the field of office planning. This requires precise mutual coordination. Today and all the more so in the "Future Office".

  • «Office of the future: New working environments or new work? A remake of the old or really rethink the office?»

  • “When we talk about the office of the future, we imply that there will be an office corresponding to our familiar thought patterns. We rather consider the layout within given rooms than the question of how much "office" we will actually need and what will be happening there. Is the term office still accurate for the place of work? Or do we have to radically change our thinking?” Stefan Behnisch

  • Together with their team, they have already implemented various building projects of different scales from Vorarlberg to Vienna. The most recent commissions result from the ongoing and successful participation in international competitions. Besides the implementation of major projects such as Science Park Linz, WiFi-Dornbirn, factory building Ansfelden, ma 48, and Schule Krems, the trio devotes itself to design studies and unusual single-family housing projects. Lecture series, seminars and art projects are also part of their main activities. At the 2004 and 2016 Architecture Biennale, for example, caramel and their installations provoked discussions at the exhibition grounds.

In the middle of the future

The new special exhibition "Büro der Zukunft | Future Office" at Paperworld, the world's leading trade fair for stationery, office supplies and writing instruments in Frankfurt on the Main, was a complete success for all participants. On two days, the visitors were able to see eight speakers in four lecture blocks and get important and exciting impulses for their own profession about working in the future, each block being rounded off by a guided tour to very specific product examples. With 18 "office stations", the special area designed by Berlin-based architect André Schmidt also offered the opportunity to intensively deepen the topic in theory and exchange ideas with colleagues. More than 300 registered and numerous spontaneous visitors approved the new format. What office work will look like in the future is one of the most important questions of our time - to which the special exhibition "Büro der Zukunft | Future Office" has found a good answer on more than 250 square meters.

 

Further training credits
  • For participating architects, interior designers and facility managers, the Architekten- und Stadtplanerkammer Hessen approved further training credits (4 credits/day).
