Every building user has a life - in the building and elsewhere! How people negotiate urban space and organise their activities in manageable and pleasant ways is key to sustainable and successful development.
From Ziona Strelitz's co-authorship of the seminal books, Fathers, Mothers and Others and Leisure Provision and People's Needs, through all ZZA's workplace studies, we have maintained an active research focus on work-life integration.
With UCL's Bartlett School, ZZA produced Getting it together: The work-life agenda and offices and Family-friendly offices: The policy, practice and legislative context. ZZA continuously tracks and distils the critical concepts relating to living, working and leisure, and their built environment implications, presenting to HR, property and academic audiences including: Corporations and cities in Brussels, and Changing cultures at University of Barcelona.
ZZA's report, 'Liveable lives', draws from our wealth of qualitative research, highlighting the strains of long commutes, and the scope of technology and distributed workspace for sustainable living and productive operations.
