In September 2014, Perkins+Will’s Minneapolis office (of which I am a part) launched MOBILEAPOLIS, a workplace mobility pilot program that enabled individuals to work freely within the office, provided the flexibility over when and where they work, and allowed them to choose the space that best supports their needs at any given time. It was our intent that lessons learned—the good and the bad—would drive the evolution of our mobility program and inform the design of our future workplace.
