This is a nice compilation - I had a few questions regarding some of your slides. You say "the future trend isn't about technology - it's about creating a space where ideas can be shared quickly." Doesn't technology go hand-in-hand with this? If you aren't able to project your idea through a computer, printed-images, or virtual communication (e-mail, etc.), how can these ideas travel quickly? How does technology work to blend into the work environment?

My second question is with regards to your comment about a "dynamic office space" with "freedom to work in a variety of space". How does this correlate to the idea of personal space? Would workers still have a "home base" so to speak? One example of a poorly executed concept of "dynamic" and "flexible" is HP's building from the 90's(?) when no one had an office space, had to check out a laptop for work, and inevitably was forced to store paperwork and supplies in their car trunks. How do you make a space dynamic and flexible while still allowing workers to feel like they have a space of their own?

The graphics in this presentation are quite nice in that they all flow nicely. I am just a little confused on what exactly you plan to show how you research this. At the end you talk about the "ideal" place and i wonder maybe you could have a compilation of different experiences in a work spaces that are nice and begin to diagram that. Otherwise keep going strong, hope this was of some help, if this not the direction which you want to go with the project than disregard what i said:p

A timeline format would be great for this presenation. For the technology slide, for example, the timeline might show interiors from a specific decade, and list events from that decade, such as the invention of the PC or Macintosh computers, etc, and start to show correlations of how these events impacted office design.

I agree with the idea using a timeline to diagram the change in technology. You could overlap this with timelines regarding private office to open office layouts and another timeline showing the amount of mobile workers in the workforce and see how the three relate.

Nice work Tyler. The presentation was clean and precise, leading the viewer to believe that this is 100% viable and there is no dispute in the data because of the inherent clarity of the graphic.

The clean look works well graphically. The adapt slide is where I lost some connection from text to graphic though.

This may need some work with text on the graphic, but minimally.

Overall would you consider losing most of the text and try to display all that information graphically? That would be phenomenal.

Again, really clean graphics. Your use of icons was perfect. I realy enjoyed the ergonomic nature of the analysis, maybe that's something you take further. Also some kind of a timeline would be great to see. Good work.

I have to agree with Zach, I'm having a hard time understanding your research components, and what particular question you are trying to ask. I think looking into the options Ainsley suggested will give you a solid starting block, but I would suggest finding some set of options on what the ideal workplace may be, rather than the old vs. new.

I would like to see more on the "collaboration space" you propose, maybe a few references sited, highlighting productivity.
