The City as a Workplace

Date:
08.07.2010

Predictions of sci-fi writers and futurists do not always realize. People still spend eight hours per day at the office or work remotely from home. Although, theoretically, Internet has opened a lot of new opportunities for us, there is still no alternative working environment to offices and homes.

How do modern technologies affect the way we work? How do we create ideal working conditions? As part of this session, we will project the «future office», discuss professions of tomorrow and consider a possibility of mix-use of public spaces.
