At the Design & Co-Innovation Center, we foster T-shaped design teams by continually expanding our knowledge and skillsets. To achieve this, we host numerous learning opportunities for our team from Bikablo drawing workshops and Drupal learning sessions to guest talks on a range of topics like photo journalism and visual storytelling.

In continuation of this effort, this year we started the “Friday Lunch Movie” tradition – an hour dedicated to watching and discussing movies and videos across a range of topics spanning design, tech, leadership, art, architecture. Through the course of the year, we saw over 30 movies and as we close 2015, here is a list of the top five and why our team loved them!

With both disciplines focused on creating a structure to shape and facilitate human experience, not surprisingly, we find many connections in our work between architectural design and digital design. In this interview we glean insight into the mind of one of the greatest architects of the 20th century.
