Office Feels

这个星球上最强大的公司都为自己建造了庞大的新总部大楼,但是建造一个容纳11000人的办公综合体更像是城市建筑,而非传统的办公空间设计。

有些像亨利·福特这样建造城镇化公司的实业家,按照类似城市建筑的标准来打造公司。福特公司拥有一支公司管弦乐团、军乐队,同时也会庆祝每个节日。这些城镇中像家庭一样的社区是由不同年龄段的人组合在一起的。不过,平均年龄不到30岁的硅谷员工就需要一种截然不同的方法来工作。

从汽车行业到家具制造业,几乎每个领域的中间状态都在销声匿迹。汽车行业里会出现两个极端,一方面很快就会出现没有任何情感连接的自动驾驶汽车,另一方面当你需要表达情感时就会选择法拉利。类似的,办公室正在变成要么极端定制化、能够引起人的共鸣的特殊场所,要么就变得非常通用。你将很少看到中间状态。

值得注意的是,人类并不总是理性和精于计算的。相反,我们的基因里已经刻下了不总是出于功利性目的而去思变的程序。我们建立高层办公室就是作为一种标记公司自我或存在的信号,除此以外找不到第二个理由。而且现在一栋栋高楼在这些公司原本没有覆盖到的区域拔地而起。因此,我们可以看到作用和反作用的存在。人们在几代人中寻找形式,然后反对它。我认为哪怕在显然是很冷冰冰的办公空间计算领域也能看到这个作用和反作用的过程。我们需要记住,空间也是有情感的。

Deyan Sudjic is a writer and director of the Design Museum in London.


The most powerful companies on the planet are all building themselves massive new headquarters buildings. But building an office complex in which 11,000 people will work is more like city-building than conventional workplace design.


There is some formal similarity here to the company towns industrialists such as Henry Ford built. Ford had a company orchestra and marching band and holiday settlements. Yet, those towns sustained family-based communities comprising different age groups. The fact that Silicon Valley’s average age for employees is less than 30 suggests a very different kind of approach to the workforce.


If one looks at almost every field, from the automotive industry to furniture manufacturing, it seems that the middle is falling out of the picture. In the automotive world, there will soon be, on the one end, autonomous vehicles with which nobody has any emotional relationship, and at the other end, you’ll have Ferrari. In a similar way, the office is becoming either extraordinarily tailored and made into a kind of resonant, special place, or very generic. There won’t be much in the middle.


It’s worth bearing in mind that human beings are not always rational and calculating. Rather, we are programmed to look for change for reasons that are not always utilitarian in nature. There’s no rational reason to build high-rise offices except as a means to signal corporate ego or presence, and yet they are now being built again, in places where they previously weren’t. So one can see the presence of reaction and counteraction. People look for formality in some generations and then react against it. I think one can see that process at work in even what is apparently a coldly calculating area as the workplace. We need to remember — there is room for emotion in there as well.
