This article looks at “the new thinking in workplace environment” that results from the latest style of office buildings rising in Australia. Gone are the days of vertical towers with an elevator core, corridors, boxy offices, formal meeting rooms, partitioned workstations and a copy room in back. In their place are open, light-filled environments of flexible office spaces clustered around atriums, interactive meeting lounges, and coffee kiosks. This article touches on the collaboration that springs from these design trends and the problem-solving and the new-business generation that can result.
