Frame Publishers' new title, Spaces for Innovation: The Design and Science of Inspiring Environments, takes readers on a journey through the workspace-change process. This book breaks down the complexities of designing working environments for future-focused organizations. Analyzing the intricate relationships between innovation, creativity, workplace strategy and people-centred design, Kursty Groves and Oliver Marlow guide readers through the process of defining new workspaces with coherent narratives and identities to support creative behavior.
Stemming from research commissioned by innovation foundation Nesta, the book provides a framework for exploring the physical characteristics of spaces associated with a new generation of pioneering companies. The content centres on ten core themes and is brought to life with interviews and case studies from around the globe that cover various perspectives - from coworking networks and educational establishments to large corporations, such as Airbnb, Microsoft and Zappos.
