Competition: FUTURE OFFICE - Rethinking Office Spaces

In the wake of Coronavirus which has changed the way we work and how we commute to those packed halls with full of People. To working from home or visiting to office on alternate days.

Let us understand Emergence of Modern Office System?

With the growth of large, complex organizations such as the Royal Navy and the East India Company in the 18th century, the first purpose-built office spaces were constructed. (Wikipedia)

How Japanese think it differently from Beginning?

Japanese businesses have set themselves apart from their American counterparts by implementing different techniques in the way they handle business. The Japanese office layout improves work productivity, harmony in the office, and holds every employee accountable for the work they produce. The type of office layout used in Japan is called an open plan, and relies on ergonomics to help make employees as productive as possible.

Corona virus is changing the way we look at our cities, our work and our Homes.
