This paper will attempt to arrive at as concise an estimate as possible for the kinds of office environments that will be needed by organizations of the future. To reach that goal, a much abbreviated overview of the history of offices will be followed by an outline of the often competing interests that currently influence office design, as well as the role of research in design. Next, organizational and work trends will introduce a discussion of the developments that must be accommodated by future office design, followed by some speculation about the form of such offices.
