Design Inspiration: Skype’s North American Headquarters

This week’s inspiration post might be especially insightful for seniors who are studying workplace design in their INT464 studio class this semester. The office of Skype’s North American Headquarters is located in Palo Alto, California, and it is comprised of 54,000 square feet, which serves approximately 250 employees. According to Design Blitz, the campus demonstrates Skype’s “spirit of innovation in a highly functional yet creative workplace designed to encourage interaction and spontaneity, as well as meet specific acoustic requirements in support of their extensive use of AV.”

In addition, the project also received LEED Silver Certification, making the space innovative both inside and out with its energy efficiency and high tech atmosphere. Check out photos below:

Have a great weekend!

Photo Recap: Mentor Mixer

Thank you to everyone who attended our Mentor Mixer this Wednesday night! The event was a huge success and it kicked off our annual Mentoring Program. Mentees (freshmen and sophomores) met with mentors (juniors and seniors) in a speed-dating fashion. Our Mentorship directors helped them break the ice by giving them questions to ask each other such as “Who is your favorite architect?” and “Why did you choose to go to school at ASU?”.  Check out the photos below:

Now that you attended the Mentor Mixer, please fill out this survey by Saturday (9/14) at midnight. If you have a specific person in mind, please write down his or her name. If you don’t know who you would like to be paired with, don’t worry! Just fill out the optional questions and we will pair you with your perfect design match. Once we confirm your match, please come meet your mentor or mentee at our Mentor Match event next Wednesday, September 18th, at 6:30 PM in CDN 291!
