The buzz in the hive

Swiss Re employees exchange perspectives, insights and opinions while carrying out daily business. With 80 nationalities in the employee base, the buzzword’s „diversity“. Multiple perspectives on any given subject inspire differentiated, informed insights, which, in turn, catalyse business innovation.

What does this have to do with sustainable architecture? Building an ideal hive for rich intellectual exchange is one reason Swiss Re Next will have open workspaces. More teams share the spaces, cross-pollinating their knowledge, so to speak. Using one space by multiple teams throughout the day is also a much more sustainable use of space – thus a more environmentally intelligent use of land. Architecture that’s better for business, people, ideas and the environment.

How do they say “kill two birds with one stone” in the other 79 languages?
