i see future being used for productive works ... humans being more efficient ... we won't be machines but we'll be more mature ... and we would spend more time working than being stupid ....... not being extra vauge ..... i'm working (research and design) on re-thinking workspaces ..... our offices ..... all opinions are welcome ...... i guess our working zones should be dramatic .... forms as good as contemorary museums, workspaces within gardens .... so we're close to nature, workplaces to be interesting .... so we work more!, confortable, wild, modern, ..... they can never and must never take the place of our homes but lets make them a picnic. the constraints are anthropometric, lighting, furniture(this can be interesting aspect), and cost. but constraints are beautiful. all guidance/references/thoughts would be appreciated. just pour out the views. all thanks

Dear Hemant,

as you can never find two persons to agree on the design of their homes, you will have a problem setting a standerd enviroment for the working architect.

However I think you can join the discussion on consumed Architects posted here at Archnet. These two discussions joined togather may lead to a very intresting threads.

thanks ahmed and prashant ... well to remove doubts first ... i would like to add that the workspace i'm talking of is general working place for people to work on desks ... back office, or contemporary cubicals, or cabins ,,,,, there has to be a new concept to get rid of these designs which seem to have simply modernised our environs rather than making them comfortable ... i agree that no 2 people can think the same way but they can definitely appreciate a common idea ... i'm specifically looking for references to philosophies related to working in groups, or info on age old SUCCESSFUL methods to design work spaces ..... and how the finer concepts can be utilised and applied to our modern day environs ....... i'm perhaps still not clear ..... well i leave it up to you guys to contribute .......... to be specific .... lets define a working zone for a person to work, communicate and store his ameneties. and also define a group of such working modules.

Hi Hemant,

For the recently concluded Computer Clubhouse Competition hosted on ArchNet, Dean Bill Mitchell of MIT's Media Lab wrote an illuminating essay about how the evolution of computer technologies -- specifically, the dramatic decrease in size of workstations and the advent of wireless PCs -- directly affected spatial patterns of the worksplace. You can download the article from Archnet at CCC Group Workspace > File Collections.

Hope this helps.
