40 ideas for a hybrid and shared office

The architecture of today’s workspaces has become more dynamic and traditional ideas of office and recreational areas have been superseded by fluid and shared spaces, open to continually changing shapes and functions.

Hybrid, shared, green. These are the fundamental attributes of the contemporary workspace, that appears to be increasingly delineated but perhaps still resistant to a clear codification. Offices have evolved going from individual configurations to islands then finally open-planned spaces, to encourage more and more human interaction and the dynamics of exchange. “The idea that we can define a type of space for a type of action belonged to the modern age”, states a study produced by Carlo Ratti Associati for Copernico, BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas and Arper entitled The new landscape of work. “In the present time, with the difficulty in defining categories, we need to look to relational entities, such as landscape”. Landscape, in Ratti’s formulation, “consists of flexible relationships held together by an inclusive cultural glue but rooted in places, which determines individual specificity and favours a continuous dimension of exchange and learning.”
