Redefining the corner office: How Technology has changed The Definition of the Work Place

I want to look at the definition of what we normally view as the desk we work at and how through the use of technology we have been able to turn a coffee shop, park bench, and other spaces normally not associated with work space into work spaces.

  1. I like the idea and can imagine some interesting photos. Light might be a relevant topic of investigation; how do people work with natural light (outside), with dim light (coffee shop), etc.. Your photos can capture the light as well as the space. What text do you think will go with these photos? Are you going to talk to people about their work-place preferences, and include that kind of text? Or are you going to rely on some secondary sources that have already considered this issue? A quick Google search turns up articles like this: http://www.facilitiesnet.com/designconstruction/tip/Changing-Work-Habits-Call-for-Changing-Workspaces–22587
    Finally, you might consider visit a few workplaces in town to see how they handle workspace. The Narrative offices at 100 NP, for example, are pretty cool. Microsoft offers an interesting mix of cubicle farms and innovative workspaces. What do the architectural firms do? They often have beautiful offices worth photographing. Maybe somebody will let you follow them for a day–capture all their different workspaces.
    I hope these ideas help. Good luck!
