Modular, efficient design will provide innovative work environments for tomorrow's employees and tenants. 
by Jon Pickard and William Chilton

Humankind has been eternally fascinated with the concept of its own future. Inherent in human ambition is the need to question the current standard and envision the next step. For millennia we have imagined and depicted the forthcoming political, economic and physical landscape.
