The flexible office -- the design less office. Technology must be implemented to allow frequent changes of structure.

Alternative design alternative offices alternative environments

The process of design has become a comprehensive and complex process on the boundary between human sciences approach, human observation methodology and computerised sciences. It is the interface that allows us to both understand and create more valuable environments for the working world. One that blurs the boundaries between living and working environments as well as those between the material and immaterial office environment distinguished by free set telephone technology, "passage" between materials such as tables or walls and implementations such as computerised table- screens or wall- screens and why not electronic beam screens instead of walls? These technologies seem to be most adapted to understand and create environments in which technology is ubiquitous and embedded. These subtle environments are the true interface between man and computerised technologies and remain in pace with global environmental issues. They seem most adapted for corporations searching to breakthrough technological shifts, competitiveness needs and environmental issues into the new era of knowledge.
