Issues with Open space design - Why You Can’t Concentrate at Work?

Opening Argument

agsragsr 540 PtsPremium MemberTechnology Community Moderator
WSJ published an article on perils of open space design that prevents concentration.

The problem is visual noise; companies get creative dialing down distractions that pull eyes away from desks, an unforeseen consequence of open-plan workspaces.

  • No, we need a more traditional design not these new technology center open designs they have going on now.

    Great for collaboration, bad for personal productivity. I like suggestions in the article

    The design is great, it's the new modern thing that companies are working on. I work at a corporation myself and happen to think it's great. It's especially great for programmers like me, so this way, there is more communication. Another new staple is programemrs being one computer. Usally 2 check each other's code for quality assurance. I like both new methods.

    @trumpinsukts, but are you distracted by all the visual and loud noise, not able to focus as much on design and coding?

    I agree with @inc4t . The design is naturally distracting and the ranks are gone for the most part which is not good for authority level.
