The Boston Architectural College invites the community to join us for Our Human Habitat: Workplace Ecosystems, a public lecture by Reetika Vijay, on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 6 pm in Cascieri Hall.

The workplace is no longer a place meant only for work. It can be a thriving, vibrant community that supports its many occupants and their varying lifestyles: social and reflective, focused and universal, and intentional and organic. Through recent project examples, including Sonos and HubSpot, Reetika Vijay will discuss elements of the evolving workplace as it pertains to a palette of four work settings: focus, collaboration, refreshing, and amenity spaces.

Reetika Vijay is the managing principal and design director for IA Interior Architects' Boston office. She brings over 21 years of experience playing a leading role in strategic planning, managing, designing, administering, and negotiating a wide variety of project types. As the managing director of IA Boston, Reetika oversees the operations of the office and works to craft strategic solutions that support IA's business goals and objectives.

Additionally, as a practicing designer and architect, Reetika has completed complex programming and space analysis projects for the portfolios of large corporate clients. She has also led the project conception, execution, and delivery of over five million square feet of commercial interiors. Her major clients include State Street Corporation, Sonos, Fidelity, ING, Sapient, eClinicalWorks, Twitter, Amazon, Bullhorn, and HubSpot, to name a few.

Reetika holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University and, as a licensed architect, is a member of the Boston Society for Architects and the American Institute of Architects.
