The Future of Work in Newsweek

This week Newsweek online published an interactive article called "The Future of Work," asking three architectural design firms to share their vision for the future of work and life 10 or 20 years from now. The setting is Manhattan, but only for illustration purposes. According to the reporter they plan to launch this concept in other cities as well. The three firms, HOK, Cooper Robertson and Richard Meier, all illustrated and spoke about what they think the future might look like.

I'm of course a little biased as I was on the HOK team, but all of the illustrations and stories are compelling and thought provoking.

HOK's vision is of course that the world is much, much, more environmentally concious in the future and our buildings and public spaces reflect that. Slightly optimistic, but why not?
