Planning and Designing for Innovation

A Hackathon
Delivered July 14, 2019
Presented by Christopher Baylow, Kenneth Ellis, Leigh Stringer
Planning Types: Campus Planning

Innovation centers, maker spaces, incubators, and idea factories get a lot of buzz, but what are they really and how can they be designed most effectively? This session is all about these innovation buildings—their design, use, and operations. We'll explore strategies and best practices, then roll up our sleeves and start designing! After we review the range of innovation buildings universities are creating, you will be asked to tackle a specific case study design problem within a small group.
