ING ‘Campus for innovators’

How to use IoT to connect people in the working space of the future?

Society is changing, so is our work environment. Back in the 80s, futurist Alvin Toffler already predicted that personal computing would lead to the creation of ‘electronic cottage’, in which people can do work in the comfort of their own homes. However, working from home also brings along obvious drawbacks like isolation and eroding the boundaries between home and work life. Yet long-term employment trends and developments in mobile technology have tended to encourage more work from remote locations, more cooperative work that is not collocated, and more federated work that is contingent rather than permanent.

In this project, ING is creating a campus environment in the southeast of Amsterdam, that’s open, inspiring and informal, encouraging flexible working and collaboration, and integrating with the community around it. It will be an urban hub where businesses, academics and innovators from all sectors can work together in an open and dynamic environment that stimulates creativity and boosts invention, every element of the innovation cycle will be brought together in one place, creating a true ecosystem.


As a designer, my role is to make use of interactive technologies to connect inhabitants and cultivate an inclusive campus community.
