'Making Places' is BNP Paribas Real Estate's Commercial Placemaking insights lab – seeking to create a new wave of creative, pragmatic cross-industry dialogue between users, landlords, developers and sector specialists. 


Increasing complexity within the built environment means that original insight, collaboration and debate are absolutely essential.

This time round we’re talking about the places in which we work - ‘Beyond the Workplace’ will explore our changing relationship with the physical workplace, which will be key to understanding its role within dynamic mixed use environments. Many of the shifts we have felt have the potential to permanently alter physical and virtual requirements for the workplace.

Within this magazine, we have brought together a raft of experts who offer an insights led approach which is essential to create meaning around the concept of ‘place’ and understanding the interrelationships between every facet of the urban environment.
