Hacking the Office Building

The Office Building of the Future

Here is a very interesting video from Gensler taking a look at the office building of the future. Their research looks to answer the question as to whether new single purpose office buildings will be needed in the future as the nature of work drastically changes from housing employees to serving employees.

Gensler’s vision as presented in the NAIOP Inaugural Office Building of the Future Design Competition outlines the concept of the “hackable” building resulting in diverse multiple uses within our stock of existing single purpose office buildings in North America.
