Alain de Botton examining the nature and function of work.
Most of our waking hours are spent at work, and yet we rarely challenge the basic assumptions that lie behind this time-consuming, life-altering activity.
Alain de Botton, writer, broadcaster and producer, ponders the question of beauty and its application to architecture.
In this panel discussion, freelance IAs Sarah Rice, Whitney Hess, Jenn Anderson, and Christopher Fahey argue that Information Architects have an opportunity to structure and evolve their own work environment. There is potential to influence where they work, who they work with, the type of work they do, and for whom they do work.
This panel discusses what it is like to create ones own work environment – the motivation for taking this entrepreneurial path, what it has been like, what we’ve learned, and the ups and downs of such a work life.
