July 2017 Practice Day

This summer Archadia held its annual practice day at the Friends House in central London. The first part of the morning was spent reviewing the business plan and exploring options for business development. This was followed by a presentation from Associate Sophie Morley on her work with the charity ASF-UK (Architecture sans Frontieres) and their current project with marginalised communities in Cape Town.
The team then took part in a co-design activity to re think the Archadia workspace – starting with the question ‘What is Work?’ we split into teams to re design the office thinking about layouts that would better foster collaboration and make the most of natural light.
The afternoon was action packed, with a visit to the Wellcome Collection, an Escape game which really tested our detective skills followed by a well-deserved drink up the Shard where we admired the view of London and reflected on a good year for the business.
