NY Times : Workspaces - Products of a Modern Dreamscape

"Like the old Good Design shows, Workspheres presents a mythology. It couples the idea of the Next with the belief that we must collectively work our way toward it. The Next will not descend from above, without our effort. We must toil to get there. On the other hand, our travel expenses will be paid, and the work will be performed with tools that have vast sex appeal. Isn't that a good deal? ... To see the work environment in temporal terms is to experience it as an event more than a place. This experience may be the most profound idea at the show. The electronic appliances are tools for creating events out of relationships in space, time and sensibility. An event may be hierarchically structured, as in a typical management chart, or its architecture may be free-floating."
