Hello, prpro!

 There is a lot of information pertaining to the Office of the Future, workplace ergonomics and workplace productivity. However, narrowing down individuals who reside in California is a difficult task. I have been at this since yesterday and am providing what I have found thus far. I will be more than happy to look further with additional clarification that might help me narrow down some more names.

 I hope the names below provide some help!

Workplace/Office of the Future

Clive Wilkinson Architects

Wilkinson is the head of his own firm, Clive Wilkinson Architects, which for years has stayed consistently ahead of the pack when it comes to innovative office design. (His work is a mainstay for Inc.'s annual World's Coolest Offices awards.) His firm's work includes Macquarie's Sydney HQ at One Shelley Street, Pallotta Teamworks in Los Angeles, and, recently, the "superdesk" used at the New York offices of marketing agency Barbarian Group.

But enough with his past laurels. This month in New York City, Wilkinson has finished up a project he says is channeling the future. "This is like looking at 2030, but it's now," Wilkinson says, of the recently completed office of corporate-education firm Gerson Lehrman Group in Midtown Manhattan.

The theme he built GLG's workspace around is one he's dubbed "activity-based working." It's a philosophy of the modern, productive, energy-efficient workplace that Wilkinson has built over the years, and one that's evolved along with the way employees interact with technology, and with their office.

Increasingly, as workers become dependent on only a highly portable computer, the traditional notion of the cubicle, or the executive office, seems unnecessary, Wilkinson says. Yes, that's right: Both the cubicle and the individual office may be a thing of the past. Or at least that's true if this influential architect has it right.

Productivity and distraction in the workplace

Too Many Interruptions at Work? - A Q&A with Gloria Mark, associate professor at the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, and a leading expert on work

Dr. Mark researches a number of work-related topics. Some are rather exotic -- designing and evaluating collaborative systems, for example, or developing and evaluating technologies to improve "virtual co-location." But much of it is the stuff that that affects everyday workers every day -- multitasking, human-computer interaction, workplace communities, offshore sourcing of knowledge work, why people really read e-mail ("From a cost-benefit point of view, in terms of worker time," she says, "e-mail does not pay off."). But in all her work, including her current Fulbright scholarship research in Berlin, she's uncovering truisms about the way work works, and how to make it work better.
