Theoffice is dead. Long live the office. Despite decades of predictionsthat the office is on the verge of extinction, it is surviving and thriving.

Ofcourse things are changing. And changing fast. Digital technologies aretransforming not only the work we do, but also the ways our workplaces aredesigned, built and operated.

Automation and AI mean that some jobs will nolonger exist whilst others will be created. Butthe very essence of the workplace - human interaction and collaboration,remains as necessary as ever.

In fact, it is the human focus that is drivingthis new age, with four generations now in the workplace together for the firsttime.

Takingan interdisciplinary approach, this book discusses the impacts of these changeson the future of work and workplace.

The latest technologies are also exploredfrom voice and digital twins, to new materials such as graphene andbattery-powered buildings.

Thebook looks at what this means for the design process, the role of the architectand physical place itself in the future, and provides a practical guide to helparchitects, designers, developers, clients and occupiers create office spacesthat promote wellbeing, innovation and growth.
