(July 31, 2018) - Arcadis, the leading global Design & Consultancy for natural and built assets, held its first Deep Orange co-creation and innovation workshop in Asia, co-hosted with InvestKL. Working with Kuala Lumpur’s (KL) public officials, the program worked towards developing feasible solutions to improve the city’s livability in the areas of affordable housing, urban transportation and construction safety.
At the end of Deep Orange, Arcadis and the city officials co-created three innovative solutions that aim to improve KL’s livability.
Deep Orange, the fifth in its global series, is a flagship co-creation and innovation program developed and hosted by Arcadis. The program is based on the fundamental principles of design thinking, which enables participants to take an outside in approach to problem solving and co-creating solutions to address a particular challenge.
