Opening with an essay by Andreas Marx on the role of workplaces in
cities, this special edition of the magazine presents eighteen
international works that reflect the increasing flexibility of creative
jobs in the 21st century. Designers, artists, and many other
professionals are approaching their daily activities in new ways, and
the freedom offered by mobile devices and Internet ubiquity is
liberating their fast-paced work from prescribed locations and times.
Office systems are incorporating new functions and activities as a
result, like open zones without hierarchies and areas that operate like
urban public spaces. With works by 3XN, Torafu Architects, OMA, Davidson
Rafailidis, and more.
