Summer School on Workplace Management


IV Edition
Coworking Spaces


The nature of work has recently evolved, along with the way workspaces are used. This dynamic has important implications especially for the design, management and location of workspaces that must respond to new challenges. This course will help students and researchers to confront these new trends.

Through lectures, group work and virtual visits to different types of workspaces, participants will have to develop an innovative workplace strategy for an important company as Vodafone Italy, also taking into account the impacts of Covid-19 on these issues.

The school is co-organized by COST Action CA18214 “The geography of New Working Spaces and the impact on the periphery”, Department of Architecture, Built environment and Construction engineering (DABC), Department of Architecture and Urban Studies (DASTU) at Polimi, with Dipartimento di Eccellenza Fragilità Territoriali and the Real Estate Center of DABC Polimi.

The course targets students and researchers. Third week will be open also to practitioners that participate to the Evento di Formazione Permanente Planning, Design and Management of Workplaces Theory and Case histories of corporate workspaces.

The complete course offers the opportunity to develop a company coworking and, subsequently, to prepare a design brief for the new corporate spaces.
