What Makes the Perfect Workplace?

From virtual reality to circular design, here is Metropolis‘s vision for today’s dream office.

If money and time were no object, how would we create the perfect workplace? In the aughts, companies that wanted to go the extra mile put in a game room or a Ping-Pong table; in the 2010s, a barista or food trucks. Now, with the pandemic not quite behind us, our priorities are a bit different. Here’s Metropolis’s vision of the ideal office today: spectacular gathering spaces, plenty of opportunities to work outside, a virtual office for those on the road, and the perfect setting for those working at home. And because we’re hurtling toward climate catastrophe, we can’t forget carbon-sequestering materials and a circular approach to asset management. That’s the dream—a beautiful, healthy, sustainable place to do our best work.
