Office design expert A.J. Paron-Wildes has a two-word solution to the age-old struggle between the kinds of workplaces companies want and the kinds employees actually need: “design empathy.” A.J. uses the term to educate others about the need to accommodate a range of sensory experiences when it comes to making modern office space.The specialist in design implementation and collaboration brings serious bona fides, having built andled an award-winning design/build firm, developed nationalprograms for the American Society of Interior Designers, and developed research programs for the University of Minnesota, to cherry pick but a few achievements. Always ahead of the curve, A.J. currently helps corporate clients cast an eye to the future when it comes to creating work spaces that actually work.
