Future of Work
With the proliferation of mobile computing, people have plenty of choices as to where they might work. They would like their office to be a desirable place socially and to connect with other people in a meaningful way. People are attracted to spaces that are visually stimulating and emotionally comforting; hence the barriers between residential, corporate, and hospitality are blurring.
People can sometimes work at the beach or work on their deck; offices are competing with the places employees would rather work. Therefore, offices of the future will be much less demure and structured and have more organic and interesting spaces. There will be multiple places to work and engage in an office versus the monolithic mentality of one-space-fits-all cubicle methods of working.
