Some of you might know that I moved down to Miami from New York City in order to combine my love for city life, architecture, and a more relaxed pace of living. For me, Miami inspires me in more ways than one. Additionally, I’ve always known that my environment heavily informs my productivity and thus have always strived to create an optimal workspace that promotes both efficiency and creativity.
So how can we best design our spaces to spark creativity? There are some tactics that many might already know, like surrounding yourself with certain objects, scents, and sounds. But for many the design ends there. There are, however, many studies that have linked a variety of techniques to robust idea formation, and I’m thrilled to share some of these fascinating tactics with all of you Creative Warriors today.
To help me dive deep into designing the best creative spaces I’ve brought on, architect, author, and educator, Donald Rattner. Donald helps individuals and organizations maximize their creativity by drawing on scientific research into the psychology of space. He has taught at the University of Illinois, New York Academy of Art, New York University, and Parsons School of Design. His work has been featured on CNN and in such publications as The New York Times, Work Design Magazine,and Better Humans. He holds a Bachelor’s in art history from Columbia and a Masters of Architecture from Princeton.
