In our Planning interview with the authors of "Agency and Influence: The Organizational Impact of a New School of Education Building," which will be released tomorrow, two faculty-related questions were raised that I thought worthy of further discussion.
Question 1: Space Change Organizational Trauma
Do planners typically alert the occupants, such as faculty, who are planning new space, or moving into new space, that the move itself can be organizationally traumatic?
Question 2: How Do Faculty Use Space?
In the case of a building like the education building that is the topic of this interview, do planners study—pre- and post-move—how the faculty use spaces? If so, are the compilations or resources that share the process or results of such studies available?
