Modularity is a concept that—in its most complete and effective application—covers not just a notion of space planning, but also applies to all the various systems of an workplace. Modularity is evident in good planning, but also the architectural design, the solution for ceilings, floors and walls, the distribution of engineering systems like power, data, and air conditioning, and in the design of the furnishing systems. In this vlog, Larry discusses the application of a modular approach to all these systems, why that has value to the corporation, the business and the individual.
