Monash Art Design & Architecture

A speculative design studio experimenting with why we 'work', what this means for our bodies, and how we as spatial practitioners can critique ideas of 'work-life balance' and designing for the workplace. This studio investigates interior/exterior workplace thresholds, working/making/living, urban experiences of work and hybrid futures for spatial practice. Guest speakers, city explorations and various interior architecture studio visits also serve to expand our own ideas of how the future of work might emerge from these spatial explorations.

Work Futures

A network exploring conformity and behaviour under surveillance, isolation and collaboration – a new way of work that encourages obscure movements and the ability to offset others psychologically and physically in neighbouring workspaces. The future workspace offers a self-sufficient cycle which allows people to analyse, reflect and reinterpret findings relative to interactions which reflect internal states, and in turn, subsequent actions.

Monitoring without feeling watched, moving without even realising - the psychological and the physical must remain anonymous. This idea of movement has lead to an office landscape designed for flexibility, comfort and the importance of small conversations - a healthy workplace, one which is self-monitoring and which gives continuous feedback to its occupants.
