COURSES, SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS::
With an interest in the future of work and organizational areas, in 2015, in collaboration with his partners in Spain (3G Office), Baumgartner organized the first WorkPlace Conference in Mexico City, which was held in several cities across the world, where the purpose was to present world trends in corporate design. In the same year he was chosen by Hugo Boss to represent the brand in Latin America for its campaign “Man of Today”.
Initially invited to chat about his vanguard and innovative vision, always pinpointing a different angle and interested in sharing and debating ideas, he wowed with his ideas that have taken his concepts and conferences to places such as Spain, Portugal, England, the Netherlands, Taipei, Hong Kong, China, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, participating with topics as diverse as “Architecture and Sustainable Development”, “The Revolution of Design” and “Design for Happiness”. Twice invited to participate in the Climate Change Summit (COP19 and COP 21/Sustainable Innovation Forum/COP19 and COP21) in Warsaw (2014) and Paris (2016), he is now not only considered an emblematic architect and pioneer of Corporate Design in Mexico, but also a passionate visionary of design and one of Mexico’s main futurists.
SYMPOSIUMS AND ACADEMIC CONFERENCES::
A promoter and avid innovator, designing areas suitable for education, in 2016 he decided to join the Centro University to organize the Espacios Symposium for Learning, a forum to debate new trends in education. In the same year he decided to design jewelry, inspired to offer his daughters a part of his origins, and launched Joyería Urbana by Baumgartner, which is currently in one of the most important museums in Mexico (Contemporary Art Museum; MUAC).
MEMBERSHIPS & ASSOCIATIONS:
Space has grown in several ways, including a division focused on research and whose alliances with Harvard (Science of Happiness), MIT (the future of education) and Bartenbach Lichtlabor in Austria (impact of lighting on people) help inform the design of its divisions: Corporate, Business, Education and Architecture. In partnership with LUA, it has developed a lighting laboratory to better understand the impact of lighting in Mexico. Recently, in addition to design solutions, Space offers consulting to improve the experience of changing offices, known as Change Management, offering a tool that helps with resistance to change in organizations. In his most recent initiative, Baumgartner has extended the consulting areas through an innovation laboratory, focused on detecting business opportunities and offering disruptive solutions, including the design of unique experiences to help strengthen organizations (Space Innovation Lab).
Baumgartner confesses, “I am driven by a passion for design – my objective is to create a positive impact based upon my social surroundings and through design”. Baumgartner also finds time to feed his obsession for reading, enjoy his sports cars, travelling and experiencing new things, but above all, sharing with his three children, who are his drive to design the context to promote the happiness of individuals in the near future, a future his children can enjoy.
