Ecosystems Of Commercial Space In The Indo-pacific

To view this video please fill in the form below.

Globally, strategies from one sector of commercial space design are crossing over to influence others. This is creating new opportunities and avenues for the owners, designers and users of spaces. Though many of the drivers of this strategic fluidity are borderless, the cultural inflections of particular places, and the real estate and planning contexts at play, can vary considerably and influence the outcomes. This session will investigate, through regional examples, how global currents are manifesting in the Indo-Pacific and survey the lessons that can be shared between us.


At the end of this panel, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the various shifts within commercial design and the benefit to end-users and consequently the  community
  • Gain an understanding of different commercial models within the region, similarities and unique offerings
  • Understand how culture reflects and informs in the various commercial developments throughout the region
  • Understand the drivers that reinforce or renounce traditional ideas of commercial hubs
