James Kerrigan (Jacobs): Culture, place, and tools: The future of place making

James Kerrigan is a musician, designer, and a true global citizen. His career in design has carried him from Australia, London, Los Angeles, DC, and now Dallas. In addition to his masterful skill in guitars, and talented eye for design, James is a deep thinker.

Like many of my conversations with James, he finds a way to stretch my mind. In this chat, we explore the future around the purpose of place and he encourages us to think bigger about the profession of interior design - to think outside the building and how the role of place and placemaking can go far beyond the typical four walls around us.

More about James Kerrigan of Jacobs: 

James has extensive national and international experience influencing & informing design solutions for high performing workplaces. Providing solutions focused on placemaking, choice, and experience in an era where work environments are increasingly optional and distributed work is increasing. Fostering critical thinking, creativity and a collaborative approach amongst distributed teams is an area of focus for James. James is working with clients and teams to reinvent workplace design to respond to the rapid changes we face as technology and the way people use and engage in space changes profoundly.
