The Office, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

I’m back in the office today, after a week working remotely.

Much as I enjoy working from home, or other locations, I am glad to be back in EG‘s Procter Street hub. Working from home is an excellent way of concentrating on particualr tasks, getting copy edited and sent to the sub-editing desks and clearing e-mail.

But the social buzz of the office is still the best way of generating ideas. If we do, as a culture, shift towards a more mobile working paradigim, then our office spaces are going to have to develop to reflect their primarily social role.
