Clever and sometimes even breathtaking, these new spaces promote new forms of work, creativity, and collaboration. The way we work is currently undergoing fundamental changes. Thanks to globalization and digitalization on the one hand and evolving corporate cultures, collaboration methods, working procedures, and hierarchical structures on the other, a range of new opportunities are opening up for both employers and employees. These promising possibilities, however, bring along significant challenges for the architecture of our workplaces --and those who would like to use them. Workscape reveals how the architecture of our working world is changing to keep up with these new developments. The book features an outstanding selection of examples from world-famous architects who are implementing projects for large, innovative firms, and pushing architectonic and aesthetic boundaries in the process. These include oMA / Rem Koolhaas for McKinsey & Company in Hong Kong, Meyer Scherer & Rockcastle for the Urban Outfitters' campus in Philadelphia, Hofman Dujardin Architects for eneco's headquarters in Rotterdam, and 3Xn for saxo Bank in Copenhagen.
