The Race Towards Smart Spaces: The Future of Working and Living

Jointly brought to you by the Information and Communications Technology & Built Environment Committees 

How can your business gain from the opportunities that workforce, workplace and digital revolution offer? There is no doubt that we are experiencing a period of transformation. From the Chamber’s unique vantage point across multiple industries, leadership styles and countries, throughout the year we will be presenting a curated series of events and content offering you insights into the latest thinking on the Future of Work.
 


As Singapore and other countries race towards their aspiration of being the world’s “smartest” city, what are the implications for citizens and where and how they will live and work? What will the future of working and living spaces be like? To what extent should form follow function? Technology cannot precede good design. Yet at the same time, technology cannot be an afterthought.

On 23rd May, a distinguished panel of leading architects, technology and real estate corporations provided a discussion on what our future working and living spaces will be like – held in Funan's one-of-a-kind experiential showsuite.
