Make working from home more joyful
For those of you new to working from home, there’s lots of advice out there about how to deal with the pitfalls and stay productive and sane (“Take a shower!” “Don’t spend too much time on social media!”). Here are a few ideas for creating a workspace and routines that will make working from home a joyful, sustainable experience.
Architecture challenges for children
British architecture studio Foster + Partners is publishing a series of architecture challenges, including building a paper skyscraper and creating a city, to keep children in coronavirus lockdown entertained. Called #architecturefromhome, the initiative was launched to help entertain and educate children who are currently stuck at home.
Each week it puts a smile on our face to look through the #DesignTogether entries that we receive and see across social media (below you'll see why). Please do continue to share your messages, stories, pictures and videos with us via social media or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

'Prior to lockdown, I rarely worked from home, but needs must and I have created a little space for myself in the corner of our bedroom where I can focus on daily tasks and get away from the mayhem!'
David O'Coimín, CEO & Founder, Nook Pod
