Valencia's Collaborative Design Center introduces one-of-a-kind experience to help business and organizations design solutions for cultural change, critical problems and future development.  Collaborative design empowers teams to think like designers - to push the boundaries of creativity and transform big ideas into practical solutions.  


The 11,000 square-foot Collaborative Design Center was built specifically to support collaborative inquiry, design and solution building for small groups.


The Compass Room and Navigation Lounge are places for the entire group to converge as one. Here, the facilitator sets up the plan and outlines the challenge so the team can focus on convergent thinking, which concentrates on aligning, integrating and pinpointing solutions.


Participants will reconfigure in the Exploration Design Studios for a session in divergent thinking. This type of thinking is expansive—it’s about tapping into creativity and endless possibilities. Activities such as brainstorming and subject mapping will elicit spontaneous and free flowing ideas, helping to draw unexpected connections.


Groups may rearrange and enter the four Focus Rooms, designed for small, intimate and narrow conversations about the topic in exploration. Here, you can go for a deep dive into the details, possible pitfalls and potential gains inherent in your business objective.

The entire group can reconvene in the Compass Room or Navigation Lounge to share, narrow the focus, collaborate in large and small groups, identify themes and group ideas into workable solutions. Here, creativity meets functionality to bring the most innovative solutions to light.
