new office designs promoting that
people collide
correlation between
personal interactions
,
performance
, and
innovation


proof
that open spaces increase performance and revenue?
successful teams share several defining characteristics:
1. talking and listening in roughly equal measure.
2. facing one another, energetic conversations and gestures.
3. connecting directly (not just with team leader)
4. back-channel/ side conversations
5. break, exploring outside the team, bring information back.

proximity
social nature
three key elements of successful communication:
exploration
engagement
energy
main finding: spaces can even be designed to produce specific performance outcomes:
productivity
innovation
or both!

What about digital communication? Do we even need face-to-face interaction anymore?
-> data show that digital communication can’t replace face-to-face interaction, remote teams don’t perform as well as those in physical proximity

proof: development of coworking spaces
The Allen curve
strong negative correlation between physical distance and frequency of communication
Google’s latest proposal for its Mountain View headquarters.
Skullcandy Offices in Zurich
People are social beings, we need interaction and enjoy "gossiping" with others. An open office design follows therefore our natural habit
“Instead of having buildings
as these boxes with walls and floors,
dissolve the building into a simple,
ultra-transparent membrane.
Creating, in effect, a piece of glass fabric and draping it across some tent poles.”

New Science of Building Great Teams
A Reconfigurable Building
Inside the proposed Charleston South structure, the building segments function like furniture that can be rearranged.
Community Garden
Google's employees will be able to work outdoors, while the public can play in the park or volunteer to work at the community gardens.
Retail
The canopy lifts up to allow the public "Green Loop"—a circuit for bikes and pedestrians—to travel through the building. Cafes and shops will be on the lower levels.
Canopies
The untraditional roofs blur the distinction between inside and out.
Parking
Consolidated parking will be located below the building. In lieu of outdoor parking lots, the plan calls for revitalizing native ecosystems, including wetlands.
