Technology’s Impact on Workplace Design

Technology has a way of changing things, doesn’t it? Remember when a fax machine was cutting-edge? Or, try to think about life before email. It boggles my mind at the thought of communicating without all of the digital tools we employ today.

In this article, architect Bill Halter with Cooper Cary makes a strong case that iPads and other new technologies are going to radically transform the workplace of the future. So much so that the historically prestigious “corner office” may simply become a seat at your favorite coffee shop.

His observations are ones that we’ve blogged about previously – here and here– so our question for you is “are iPads, mobile technology and other portable electronics changing the way you work and design?” We’d love to hear how you are incorporating hoteling stations, collaboration zones and fewer square feet per associate into your designs.
