Why Public Art Is Important

Why Public Art Is Important | Office Environments Of The Future | Scoop.it

Community art can also create attachment to one’s community. According to Bach, studies have looked at the economic development benefits of art, but only just recently have there been wider examinations of the effect of art on a community’s sense of place. The Knight Foundation’s Soul of the Community initiative surveyed some 43,000 people in 43 cities and found that “social offerings, openness and welcome-ness,” and, importantly, the “aesthetics of a place – its art, parks, and green spaces,” ranked higher than education, safety, and the local economy as a “driver of attachment.” Indeed, the same story may be playing out locally in Philly: a survey of local residents found that viewing public art was the 2nd most popular activity in the city, ranking above hiking and biking.

Lockers Will Be Required for the Future of Collaborative Workspaces

Lockers Will Be Required for the Future of Collaborative Workspaces | Office Environments Of The Future | Scoop.it

As soon as you shave away at personal space and remove the safe haven of an assigned desk it’s even more critical to give over a space for staff to keep their things both work and fluffy gonk related. People are hoarders and unless pressed, won’t throw things away. I remember one extreme example of this on a project where we found in one individual’s desk a large collection of catalogues that were over twenty five years old. For what purpose could they possibly have been other than as an impromptu desk levelling device? Ultimately people will fill whatever space they are allocated so it is important when calculating how much space is required to understand what is a) critical to their business function and b) what a packed lunch, cycle-to-work, proud family person needs to be happy.

How Technology Changed Our Workplace Communication [Infographic]

How Technology Changed Our Workplace Communication [Infographic] | Office Environments Of The Future | Scoop.it

There is no question technology and mobile devices have changed the way we work and workplace communication in general. What I’d like to write about today goes far beyond employees being available to their bosses on the weekends via their company-paid smartphones and people getting busted on Facebook at work. I’ll be talking about an entire shift in how we communicate with our coworkers and get our jobs done on a daily basis.
