Abstract

Questions the essential nature of the office building itself in a study, The Responsible Workplace, which criticizes the stereotype found in North America and Northern Europe. Identifies two realities which drive the demand for improvement: more powerful IT and more discriminating users. Lists the changing factors which will influence the design and use of the office buildings of the future: businesses, user expectations, technologies, IT and intelligent buildings, building performance, environmental issues, locations, patterns of office work, and regulatory perspectives. Finally, identifies ten initiatives for innovation which will virtually remake the working environment and invent the cities of the 2000s.
