Programme Highlight

In just a few months COVID-19 has changed how and where we work, forcing different and flexible ways of working. As we start to settle into a new normal, we look at the short and long-term trends and developments that will impact the kind of workplaces we will inhabit in a post-pandemic world, not to mention the opportunities these present. We look at some of the arising themes and thinking from our Foresight and Property teams around the world. Each region is emerging with a fresh set of experiences and insight around what impact this is likely to have on us all. In this webinar, Yannick Lenormand, Arup’s East Asia Foresight leader, will be presenting his perspective from the region.


Free of Charge.


Yannick Lenormand is Arup’s East Asia Foresight leader and currently based in Hong Kong.

His role is to understand the manifestations of change around us, identify future needs and how these changes are impacting or may impact the future of the built environment, our business, our clients’ business and most and foremost how change is impacting people’s lives. Yannick has a background in industrial design, design thinking and material science. He has been focussing on exploring future trends for the last 13 years.
