I’m the rare coworking space founder who still practices architecture. Since opening BLANKSPACES in 2008, I’ve iterated how design can extract space efficiencies while organically fostering collaboration within the community. In 2011, I hosted the first gathering – an unconference – of experienced coworking space owners and operators. Later that year, a few of us founded LExC.co, League of Extraordrinary Coworking, a network of coworking brands whose like-minded owners share best practices. In 2013, some LExC members and others formed COSHARE.co, the first national coworking association.
