Opendesk x Google: Meet Project Jack

The concept of flexibility is tossed around with ease, but what does it really mean for the physicality of working?

Then there are policies such as hot-desking that seek to promote flexible working. But when it comes to the building itself, the water is murky. Can a built room truly be a ‘Jack of all trades’; reinventing and constantly changing, chameleon like, to suit the needs of its varied users? Can it increase in size, alter its shape and purpose with ease?
