250: Square feet of office space per worker in the US in 2000
190: Square feet of office space per worker in the US in 2005
Recent research is proving that opening offices are terrible for productivity. But the trend towards less office space per worker is undeniable. At some point that is going to collide with the minimum requirements of a room to be an edit suite: must be completely enclosed; must have room for a preview monitor and speakers; must have room for a producer to screen comfortably.
I’m curious to see how the edit suite of the future continues to evolve alongside technology that enables remote editing like Bebop Technology.
