Architecture Design Workshop (Researching User Demand for Innovative Offices): Course Description

The focus of this OpenCourseWare is designing the changing workplace. The course looks at how emerging economic, social, and technological trends are affecting the working environment. The course goes on to explore ways (practical techniques) to measure how well a working environment is performing. The end result of the course is creation of rigorous techniques of measurement that allow the user to see the relationship between successful workplace design and business purpose. The original on-campus course (lectures and workshop) was taught by Professor Francis Duffy, a visiting professor at MIT from 2001 to 2004. This is a graduate-level course intended for students majoring in Architecture. This course is the third out of six workshops by Professor Duffy.

Materials included with this OpenCourseWare are a reading list and a calendar with summaries of the class content. If you would like to take this free course, then visit factors in designing a changing workplace course page.
