Design projects are often an educated guess about the future—they are planned with assumptions about what activities and technology might look like five to eight years ahead. Often, due to the cost of reconfiguration, the resulting space remains unchanged for a long while. At Haworth, we suggest an “organic” metaphor to create a space that is aligned with the organization’s strategy, evolve the space as it “senses” the need for change, and sustain the improvements over time and in alignment with the organizational culture. The financial incentives of organic spaces are compelling: Reduce the cost of change by 75%, first cost construction savings of 20%, ongoing HVAC energy savings of up to 35%.
