This article alerts readers to a makeover currently underway around the office cubicle. The author looks to a number of experts in office design to help create a picture of what design changes are coming. Among the more interesting predictions:

  • Larger companies putting the manager’s office in the middle of the office, with workstations surrounding it [and getting the window views].
  • Higher ceilings and suspended lights will take the glare out of computer screens.
  • “Softer issues” will gain in importance as daycare and cafeterias become more prevalent and wireless notebook lounge areas are increasingly used to generate conversation and ideas within companies.
