Designing for Uncertainty

Laura Vierling, Managing Director of IA's Washington DC studio, explores how IA redesigned ICF's headquarters with a focus on supporting uncertainty. The design reduced real estate usage by 35%, improved efficiency and productivity, and earned LEED Gold certification for its environmentally friendly features. In addition, bolstered by IA’s innovative design concepts and workplace solutions, the scheme improves efficiency and productivity, streamlines operations, reduces operating costs, and embeds strategies for future flexibility and long-term adaptability.
