In medieval times the administration of an entire kingdom was done out of one simple room. There have been some dramatic shifts in office design and culture over the years. Who knows what lies ahead?
Once upon a time there were no offices –not for the sole purpose of working anyway.
We often think about the office of the future, but what about the spaces where workers were housed a century ago, or even further back? How did the modern office get to where it is today?
Offices have been evolving over a very long period. But changes can happen fast.
Plenty of people would remember the dull offices of even 30 years ago, and marvel at the transformations taking place today. Particularly at the innovations to the workspace pioneered by technology firms such as Google and Airbnb.
