“The environment must be able to adapt to the collaboration process. This means that the environment must be able to adapt to what people need to achieve together. If this requires a team of two people, the environment should allow it; if it requires a team of 100 to work best, the environment should allow it.”
– Patrick Frick, Co-Founder Moving Walls and Value Web
At the heart of the family-run start-up Moving Walls is the ideological approach of architect, facilitator and thinker Matt Taylor and architect Frank Lloyd Wright that the interface of physical environment, organizational practices and tools is critical to solving complex systemic problems.
This approach as a starting point and the conviction that the environment must be able to adapt to specific collaborative requirements led the brothers Marcel and Patrick Frick to found Moving Walls with the vision of creating spaces for collaboration and enabling problem solving in groups. Marcel Frick, a trained carpenter, and Patrick Frick, co-founder of Value Web and facilitator at the World Economic Forum, developed the Moving Wall, a modular tool for improving collaborative work and creating agile and flexible spaces.
