Session Description

The open plan is the future! The open plan is a failure! The ups and downs of workplace design is a regular feature for major news outlets. Clinical workplace settings are no exception, as organizations struggle to balance collaboration, privacy, serendipity, and confidentiality. Missing, however, is an accounting of environmental psychology research, much of which explains modern day anecdotes. In this roundtable, moderators will take a close look at the best workplace research, review headlining research studies for rigor, and explore the inevitable tensions in real world designs. Help your clients make workplace design decisions that balance desirability, viability, and feasibility.
