My look for last night’s “People Like Us” premiere in NYC. It was a really sweet, heartwarming movie. (Taken with Pose)
Pastoral capitalism. How companies left city centres behind (and why this is probably over)
We now know that the model of spatial organization of labour in post-industrial economy has had a pattern and an explanation. Companies looked for monofunctional and isolated areas as a way to create a productive workspace, leaving back stressful cities to build a perfect paradise of controlled working environment in which hierarchy and specialization could be properly managed. We can also understand why this type of large suburban industrial developments may no longer make sense in a not too distant future, as the way we work and the way companies try to interact and create innovative contexts is already changing. The urban melting pot is becoming a spatial condition for creative business environments.
