Remote workers and societal transformations are changing how office facilities are designed and built. Picture a 1970’s office. It had walls, doors, desk phones, a lunchroom and a few meeting rooms. Now picture a 2020 office. It may be the “dreaded” open office, it may be an airport terminal, a home basement, a shared working space or anything else. UC&C 2020 means that technology works to connect colleagues regardless of where they are. What does this reality do to space design, home office design and our ability to concentrate on work? During Collaboration Week New York’s “The Workspace of the Future – Just What Is an Office?” session, Mark Peterson of Shen, Milsom & Wilke discusses this.
