Join AIA Austin and the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) on Tuesday, August 23 as we tour WeWork located at 600 Congress.  WeWork’s mission is “to create a world where people work to make a life, not a living.” The transformation of this two story space provides an open, collaborative workspace where creative people and start-ups can lease a small space of their own but also become part of a larger community. This beautiful space encompasses 28,863 SF on the 14th floor and a connecting stair between the 15th and 16th floors. The outdoor terrace has been reimagined to provide space for meetings, yoga classes and soaking in the Austin skyline. The design team will give an overview of the technical aspects and design principals of the project and then we’ll tour the facility and experience firsthand how the users create and collaborate in this great space.

The design team included:
Leah Ellis, RA
Jessica Vessell
Leah Reyes
Sommer Sorenson
Nick Meyer

Architect of Record
GSC Architects

Novo Construction

Structural Engineer
Datum Engineers
