Administrative spaces are the physical manifestations of economic, demographic and cultural forces. The changing nature of working places is transforming spaces into open, flexible locales where separate professions and disciplines more easily converge. The changing demographic of workers is altering designs to be more comfortable, social and collaborative with technology. For these and other reasons, spaces of innovation help elevate what matters in today’s economy, making them the places to watch, and sending helpful signals to cities and suburbs aiming to become more competitive.
