FIND THE AGAR / MEDIUM TO GROW THIS NEW CULTURE
INTERSECTION comes about through the merger of two great companies, each with distinct organizational characteristics and culture. The new enterprise will build on the best attributes of each
organization, while the presence and influence of Sidewalk Labs will impact the collaboration significantly.
The importance of promoting the success of a new culture at INTERSECTION is foremost in our list of project goals. We think about “culture” in a couple of different, but equally important, ways.
The first is an idea about growing a living organism in a controlled environment. We believe that well designed environments can serve as the medium for an organic, self-determined arrangement of workers and learners. The medium allows the dominant attributes of different organisms to come together in a vibrant, super-organism. The whole becomes stronger that its parts.
The second way that we think about culture is with a capital C. Culture, including art, music, food, sports, and traditions of making, is the glue that connects peoples from the different corners of the world. We may come from very different worlds, but our enthusiasm and love of Culture unites us in shared interests and new discovery.
INTERSECTION will succeed through the creation of a great new culture, where a community works, learns and lives in an environment that enables autonomy, connection, collaboration, discovery and shared knowledge.
