A new film: Workplace -- and a new Kickstarter for a Helvetica poster reprint

3 likes

Greetings Urbanized backers, it's been a while! Hope you've all been well. I've got two pieces of news for you. I'm excited to tell you about a new film I'm working on for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale. Workplace is a documentary about the future of the office. It looks at the thinking, innovation, and experimentation involved in trying to create the next evolution of what the office could be.

The film follows the design and construction of the New York headquarters of digital agency R/GA (in collaboration with architects Foster + Partners) who have been experimenting for the past 18 months with how physical and digital space can better interact. Digital technology has radically changed how and where most of us work, but the physical spaces we work in haven’t kept up with that transformation.

Hundreds of millions of human beings spend billions of hours in offices every day (you might be sitting in one as you read this). How can we make them better places for people to work and collaborate? What's the next wave of digital tools to connect the office, the city, and the planet? And do we even need offices anymore?

Workplace will premiere at the Biennale, where it will be screening daily from May 28 to November 27. I'll be posting more details about the film and its cast soon, and we're planning a really unique screening experience at our exhibition in Venice. There will be special screenings in other cities this summer, along with a global internet release. Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to watch as we finish the film.

And in other news: after seven years of being out of print, we've just launched a Kickstarter campaign a few minutes ago to reprint the original Helvetica "Meet the Cast" film poster, designed by Experimental Jetset. We're also printing a slightly smaller limited-edition letterpressed version.

If you're one of the people who's emailed me over the past seven years wondering when we'd reprint it, here's your chance to get one. If enough people want one of these posters, we'll reprint 'em!

Thanks as always for your continued support, it really means a lot to me.

Cheers! Gary
