Description: Recent technological advances in telecommunications, electronics, security, automation, and building control systems create many new challenges for workplace designers. The "workplace of the future" must accommodate these new technologies and changing work styles in appropriate physical, environmental, and organizational settings to enhance worker speed, communication, and overall productivity. The Advanced Building Systems Integration Consortium, an industry-university partnership established at Carnegie Mellon University, is dedicated to researching and developing the quality of the workplace through the innovative use of advanced technologies. This important work reports on the major findings of the multidisciplinary field team in the study of a few key Japanese office buildings. The authors focus on a selected set of design features - components and integrated systems - that herald innovative future trends and stand the test of occupancy evaluation. Designing the Office of the Future provides the general approach of the Advanced Building Systems Integration Consortium (ABSIC) to the building studies and their use towards the development of advanced products and workplaces. The book reports generalized findings from the international building studies in four countries, explains the intellectual framework of the team's approach to defining advanced workplaces, and presents the details of the actual building evaluation process. The book then presents an overview of Japanese trends drawn from the in-depth building studies and other building visits, as well as critical readings and discussions with Japanese leaders in intelligent building design. Other topics covered include theselection of innovative components, systems, and processes identified by the multidisciplinary team in four Japanese buildings - Toshiba Headquarters, NTT Twins Regional Headquarters, the ARK Mori Building, and the Umeda Center building. Designing the Office of the Future then discusses new developments in building design technology, and concludes with a list of major design changes to be introduced into the technologically advanced workplace.
