    by anthropology course by Carlo Cubeiro and Patrick Laviolette Teams have done ethnographical research by visiting different collaborative spaces such as Garage Hub Tehnopol and an advertisement agency Tank and even done participant observation in an architecture office Here is a little overview what the two groups presented on project review meeting a week ago Group Aivo Arusaar Brigit Pulk Multifunctional working surface In our research we looked how people personalize their work area They make it homey by having a mug of their own wearing cozy slippers or even keeping an office pet As they don t have a cabinet their table becomes their private area with baby pictures and personal motivational notes This personal life on the table is visible to clients visiting the office Something our interviewees felt uncomfortable with as they wish to share more of their professional side and less of their private life Currently there are on the market solutions to store personal belongings but there is no product that enables to maintain the personal space without cleaning the table This became central to our concept so our key idea is maintain personalized space when the purpose of the room changes Group Madhes Anandh Suo Baolian Franziska Porsch Kiosk Concept In analysis we juxtaposed conventional office and open office and quite soon it became clear that the conventional furniture used in open office limits the potential of the collaborative space In addition to that open space offices often lack an extra room for meeting as well as a private area We have identified different levels of openness needed a half open space open space and even a closed space As a kiosk on a street brings together different needs and functions the office furniture should also enable to combine different activities We are working
