Experience Design News

Dear reader, 
I hope you had an amazing summer. Besides broadening the topics of the newsletter, I’m also currently tweaking the design to make it more enjoyable and meaningful for you.
Let me know if you have any wishes or thoughts, I’d be happy to hear from you!


Spaces & Experiences

Floating University
by Raumlabor

The Floating University is an impressive temporary space in Berlin that you should check out. It’s an inner-city offshore laboratory for collective, experimental learning and cross-disciplinary network building that challenge the routines and habits of urban practices and formulates visions and ideas for a better city of the future. Besides exchanging knowledge and creating educational formats, they’ve also designed experimental water filtration systems, a discursive kitchen, a student-run bar and a fast food greenhouse.

The Floating University is open to the public until September 15.
Explore the rainwater basin and the campus, participate in workshops, lectures and seminars, and enjoy hot tub talks, concerts and performances. Check out the program here: 


Events & Workshops

New Work Community Day 
by Les Enfants Terribles

If you are looking for a deep dive into the topic of New Work, you should definitely check out Les Enfants Terribles — a School and Community for good New WorkIn the magazine, you will get a lot of inspiration around the topic of new ways of working, leadership and an authentic, self-determined life.

The Community meets four times a year to connect and exchange at the Good Enfants Terribles Day (since most of the members are German, the main language is also German). Your next chance to check-in will be on September 15 in Berlin. Sign up for the community event here.


Tools & Resources

The Art of Gathering

If you design and organize meetings and gatherings for work or love to host people, you should check out The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker. In her book Parker talks about why so many of our meetings don’t work and how we can create more meaningful interactions. 

Or why not (also) listen to Debbie Millman’s (Design Matters) interview with Parker.

Hyper Island Toolbox

The Hyper Island Toolbox is a very hands on resource to help you prepare your next meeting or workshop. It’s a source of many great methods to align, energize, challenge or trigger action in the teams you’re working with. Another plus: you can filter toolbox methods by category, time frame and team size.

If you have any questions or suggestions for topics that should be covered please drop me an e-mail!
