What defines 'the world of workplace'? When we talk about 'workplace' today, we often refer to a building and review its performance in relation to the requirements of the owner of that building (either owned or leased). But buildings are effectively nodes of those grids that we call cities. And cities are transforming and innovating at an accelerating pace, their innovation projects often funded by governments.
