ACMP UK Webinar


Dr Nigel Oseland


Join Nigel, an Environmental Psychologist, Workplace Consultant, Change Manager, Researcher, Author and International Speaker. His webinar will outline the common design mistakes with the modern open plan office and the industry focus on cost that has resulted in the ill-fated Workplace Zoo. The requirements of office-based workers according to psychological theory and research are explained, citing historic studies in psychophysics and more contemporary research in environmental and evolutionary psychology along with references biophilia, anthropology, zoology and neuroscience.

Nigel continues with workplace solutions, focussing on how to plan, design and manage offices to accommodate our innate human needs now and in the future. Nigel’s proposed workplace solution the Landscaped Office is a revived and revised version of Bürolandschaft with a contemporary twist.

The impact of workplace trends, such as agile working and hot-desking, are also explored and found to complement the workplace solution, resulting in the Agile Landscaped Office.
