We’re working with WPP to create a campus in Prague, bringing together 12 of its agencies under one roof. The new office will see one of the most architecturally-important functionalist buildings in Prague extensively renovated to house up to 1,500 of WPP’s people.
When it opens in 2021 it will be the latest of WPP’s major office co-locations, which include Amsterdam, Madrid and Milan. WPP’s “campus” strategy creates world-class working environments, fosters collaboration and gives clients simple access to the best talent, creative work and integrated solutions.
