Having Mastered the Office Space, WeWork Wants to Design the City of the Future
The We Company, formerly known as WeWork, hired former Google exec Di-Ann Eisnor and designer Dror Benshetrit to lead its new urban planning initiative
The We Company, formerly known as WeWork, is venturing into urban planning. Last week, the coworking real estate company announced the appointment of former Google executive Di-Ann Eisnor and New York-based designer Dror Benshetrit to lead the company’s new future cities initiatives. Quartz first reported on the new initiative Tuesday.
In an emailed statement, the We Company said that the two new hires will help the company “create products that fix design and space problems in buildings, neighborhoods, and cities.”
Also in the statement, Benshetrit said that his new team at We “will work to fuse nature, design, technology, and community in our cities in order to measurably improve the lives of citizens.”
