The Architects’ Journal has teamed up with the Crown Estate to launch a “Future Office” competition – and going by the promotional graphic the office of the future will have to cater for people on bikes.
The Crown Estate is an investor and developer with a central-London portfolio worth £6 billion, including the whole of Regent Street and much of St James’s. The Future Office competition is open to all UK-based architects. It asks entrants to consider how inspiring and effective workplaces will operate from 2020 onwards based on changing ways of living and working, new technology and other factors such as traffic congestion and the impact of climate change. Clearly, bikes fit into that scenario.
