Building the next generation of workspaces on NTU campus for a cohesive and collaborative working environment

Come and join us in this ideation challenge where you can put your creativity to the test by rethinking how  future workspaces will evolve as part of the future hybrid work model of partial work-from-home and work-from-office!

Big firms such as Twitter and Google are already planning a permanent shift to remote working while local banks like OCBC are reviewing its office space requirements. This means that traditional fixed-desk seating arrangements are no longer needed! Activity-based workplaces where employees have a variety of individual and shared places to work, collaborate, or have online meetings need to be in place.

Join the upcoming MakanNight! Challenge to address the challenge statement: How can we adjust our study and meeting spaces on our NTU campus to meet the future concept of workspaces?
