The way we work has significantly changed in the past 100 years. From skyscrapers and cubicle farms to home-working and technology driven hot desks.

But what will a future workplace look like? Will it be entirely wireless? Will it be more like home or a digital AI factory? Will it meet either people's or robots' needs? Will work lives be better - or frustrating and miserable?

Our project is an event (with drinks!) to promote debate on The Future Workplace. We will show a thirty-minute video that combines a history of the transformation of office design with behavioural science research on productivity and well-being in the workplace. Industry experts will then share their ideas in a provocative panel discussion.

We will get the guests' opinions and publish our findings to raise awareness of the effect the future workplace will have on the end user: the people in it.
