Sunlight. Flowers. Grassy hills. Welcome to the new age.
As you're reading this from your 5 x 5 cubicle, imagine a work space where outdoor cafe tables abound and you could choose where you want to sit -- at least that's what architects Ju-Hyun Kim and Euno Cho want you to picture. We, Millennials, are in interesting bunch (or so we've heard). And the idea of pushing over those padded, carpeted walls in favor of green space and natural isn't too far-fetched of a concept.
Pros: communal spaces, democratic seating charts, solar-powered options, and a creative environment.
Cons: less privacy, less access to electrical outlets, and uncomfy seating.
So, as idea people across the world start thinking of "hot-desking" and outdoor seating spaces, is this is a good idea or not?
