Neocon Talks 2024: Videos from Day 1

Relive Day 1 of NeoCon Talks 2024 through the following video recordings. This year’s eight 20-minute session covered topics from Gen Z @work and occupational therapy to monotasking and democratizing architecture. 

Gen Z kicked off the second year of Neocon Talks with moderator Katie Sargent spoke with Formica’s FORM Student Innovation Competition 2024 Winners — Cali Pitcher, Interior Designer and Audrey Weiss, Industrial Design, Purdue University.  These young winners discussed their submissions, transitioning from student to working professional, and what Gen Z is looking for in the work environment.

To have my designs come to life is totally different than working on someone else’s design. It‘s very empowering to know my colleagues trust me to do this, therefore I can do it. I know I can make this happen.

The result is a visually dynamic, high-performance textured surface suitable for vertical, horizontal, postformed and flat applications in high-end commercial environments such as hospitality, higher education and office spaces.

Next up was Democratizing Architecture with Tanya Khanna, Founder of Epistle. Every design has its own unique story; In order to give architecture a distinct voice today, a content-based communication strategy becomes a critical tool and a means to that end. Khanna brought all voices to the table to set the course for a better, more inclusive and sustainable future.

We experience the spaces around us and that is what shapes the spaces we occupy, the buildings we live in, the buildings we inhabit, the schools we study in … Unlike the other arts, whether it’s music, theater, sciences, experiencing architecture and design and the built environment is not a matter of choice.

Vice President of Design Segment at Momentum Textiles, Libby Gillen challenged the popular belief that multitasking is the key to productivity. Instead, she introduced the concept of Monotasking to enhance creativity, productivity and wellness.

Only 2 .5 % of people can actually multitask and multitask well. Our brains don’t work like that. We have a frontal cortex left and right. They need to work together to get our best input out.
