There is a duality inherent in organizational architecture. It has been thought of previously in a somewhat rational and organized manner, while exercising a generalization of the everyday person. However, the architecture of the workplace has been employed to set boundaries, and from this; the organization of space can enhance or restrict communication, power, movement, dis/order, and ultimately, creativity. The thesis includes a design proposal for a creative co-working space, in one of the world's design capitals: Milan, Italy. Focusing on outcomes of the precarity of work that has proceeded an era of technological revolution and the influx of mental and physical health complications that have impeded the fabric of everyday life. The design intends to use the co-working model to provide an inclusive environment, by creating a series of architectural atmospheres that aspire to support the future of workplace to become both more creative, and in addition, more human.
