Could One Create In This Space?
Could one work well in this environment? How much does the nature of a space influence the psychology of those who work in it?
Florida suggests that: "...office layout and contemporary design are just part - a very superficial part - of the deep problems vexing the professions. How many professional firms out there are addressing things like flexible schedules, work-life balance, greater autonomy and control over work, valuing the entire person, true diversity, and intrinsic rewards."
True, but some professionals do, de facto, find themselves spending 50-60 hours a week in one confined space and being in a creatively decorated environment could perhaps alleviate some of the weight of quotidianity?
