This event is SOLD OUT!
This interactive panel discussion will focus on how Northwestern University, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Marquette University are using creativity and collaboration to foster innovation on their campuses. As many institutions are challenged to provide for the needs of their faculty, staff, and students with fewer resources, let’s learn from each other and not reinvent the wheel. The Garage is Northwestern's hub for student entrepreneurship and innovation. It brings together a cross-disciplinary community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who all share a passion for building new ideas. The 11,000 square foot space is located in the university’s North Campus Parking Garage.
Describe how institutions create spaces that support necessary collaboration and innovative environments.
Review best practices in planning and designing innovative spaces.
Examine case studies at several institutions and identify the lessons learned after occupancy.
Discuss the impact of these spaces on future innovative space planning.
