Our series on Forward-Looking Facilities continues with a closer look at the new work experience of staff and faculty, and how that will reshape work-life balance and the nature of work – on campus and off – in what is going to be a very fluid future.
In part 2, “The Fluid Future of Work,” Ken looks at the fluidity and ambiguity facing PSE in the years ahead, employee appetites for remote and hybrid work, and the implications for office design and space. He emphasizes that mental wellness is a growing concern for students and staff alike, and that sleep deprivation is an often-overlooked issue. Finally, he shares advice for architects and designers: try not to close off options, keep things flexible, modular, and demountable.
