If you toil in Bolling you are familiar with the halls/walls/offices built out of file cabinets. Cabinets that few have ever seen opened in years, if at all. So it is with both caution and dread that I point out how an organization really interested in building a physical environment where people can concentrate and think (and yes, collaborate) puts their money where their rhetoric is.
As the Kent’s Krew points out:
We think there are lessons in these designs which can be distilled for the new IC. We are certain that given the option, many of the best and brightest would vote with their feet in favour of such environments – should they ever become available in an enlightened organization.
