This aint your daddy’s office space!

So somewhat related to my previous post regarding environmental influence on creativity, This Aint No Disco is a cool site dedicated to featuring unique and inspiring workplaces.

Go and take a visit and enjoy (or even drool over) some of the workplaces listed.

Can your physical environment influence creativity?

I’ve always hated fluorescent lighting, even to the point of climbing on a chair at work to twist the bulbs until they turned off. Is there a correlation between your physical workplace, or any environment for that matter, and your level of creativity? I’ve always felt so and a recent article over at Scientific American spends some time looking at the theory.

So what’s your take? Does it matter if your working in a government-like building dressed in gray and flooded in fluorescence, or a swank and colorful loft soaked in incandescence and adorned with bean bags?
