The NetWorkPlace(TM) Phenomenon: any time and any place - reality or a seductive myth?
Smith, Paul (2009) The NetWorkPlace(TM) Phenomenon: any time and any place - reality or a seductive myth? In Daniell, T., Russell, S., & Jacquet, S. (Eds.) Proceedings of the 2nd International Architecture and Phenomenology Conference 2009, EFEO Research Centre, Kyoto, Japan, pp. 1-16.
A new spatial logic encompassing redefined concepts of time and place, space and distance, requires a comprehensive shift in the approach to designing workplace environments for today’s adaptive, collaborative organizations operating in a dynamic business world. Together with substantial economic and cultural shifts and an increased emphasis on lifestyle considerations, the advances in information technology have prompted a radical re-ordering of organizational relationships and the associated structures, processes, and places of doing business. Within the duality of space and an augmentation of the traditional notions of place, organizational and institutional structures pose new challenges for the design professions. The literature reveals that there has always been a mono-organizational focus in relation to workplace design strategies and the burgeoning trend towards inter-organizational collaboration, enabled the identification of a gap in the knowledge relative to workplace design.
The NetWorkPlaceTM© constitutes a multi-dimensional concept having the capacity to deal with the fluidity and ambiguity characteristic of the network context, as both a topic of research and the way of going about it.
