They live in a world of increasing complexity. Technologies, regulations, social, environmental and economic factors all are increasing in complexity. In the last 30 years the probability that designers are working more than 50 hours a week has greatly increased. According to a survey by the Architects Journal, 40% of architects report working more than 10 hours of overtime. But with all this increased brain use, making time to play becomes even more critical. Recent empirical studies have proven the importance of giving your brain a break. As Ferris Jabr put it recently in Scientific American, “Downtime replenishes the brain’s stores of attention and motivation, encourages productivity and creativity, and is essential to both achieve their highest levels of performance and simply form stable memories in everyday life.” So what does it take to lure architects out of the office?
Join us at Picnic in the Presidio (coincidentally on the same night of Off-the-Grid). They will augment the food and drink with lawn games and other opportunities to give the brain a break. Design is all about approaching a problem from a new direction and sometimes that means not thinking about it at all for a while. Sponsored by EHDD.
