Lens Strategy is a consulting studio that grew out of an architecture firm, Shepley Bulfinch. Where architects typically design spaces, buildings and campuses, Lens consists of a group of designers (not just architects) that design services, businesses and experiences – three intangible aspects of our clients’ organizations that benefit from the way designers think. Lens exists because Shepley Bulfinch saw unmet client needs at the early stages of architecture projects and leveraged their design skills to solve for that need. The story of Lens offers an important example of the “value add” architecture firms bring to clients throughout every phase of the project. This is an interactive workshop with two purposes: 1) teach attendees how to improve project success by leveraging skillsets beyond architecture and 2) explore “value add” opportunities for architecture firms to expand their services.
