The Evolution of the Workplace

Throughout modern history, the design of the office has had to contend with rival aspirations—management supremacy vs. employee empowerment, privacy vs. interaction, the demand for ever-increasing productivity vs. the long-term corporate benefits of a happy workforce. As in all major shifts in design, the advances were led by strong-willed visionaries whose ideas challenged the status quo and continue to influence the space where we spend nearly half of our lives.

High Lines or High Streets? Learning from New York's Contrasts

The High Line is one of the few projects in memory that has attracted almost universal praise.

But are dominated by the image of mammon, a skyline of commercial towers the occupants of which vary with the flux and fortunes of the market.
