Workplace (2017), by Gary Hustwit
If you try to calculate how many hours you’ll have spent at an office by the end of your life, you’ll get two results: depression and a stratospheric number. But something is clear: workplaces must evolve and become inspirational, welcoming, warm, comfortable, practical, friendly. How? This documentary explores the past, present and future of offices while exploring how can we turn them into better places thanks to technology. By following the design and construction of R/GA’s new headquarters in New York City, designed by Foster + Partners, the piece reflects on themes like the boundaries between physical and digital spaces, public and private/personal.
