“Collaboration” Gone Wild

Image001

Quoting from today’s New York Times about a new office interior in Atlanta by Gensler:  “You see and feel work happening all over the space,” Mr. Grindell said. “There’s better density, energy and productivity on two floors now than on two and a third before.” And “The us-versus-them went away,” Mr. Parker said. “It’s one team, one floor. Now we’ve got some mojo.”  If you ask me, the “work pyramid” and the astro-turf pillows are completely ridiculous – and fueled by uncritical and clichéd ideas about the modern work environment.
