B1_#010 // The Director’s Office // David Flook
This drawing presents the ‘Director’s Office’ more as a state of operation, rather than a particular set of spatial conditions. No longer is the director preceded by a large desk and flanked by stacked shelves but rather a series of directors might lightly occupy an unplanned, accessible and potentially semi-public plot. A consistency of furnishing and generous aspect communicates the non-hierarchical and transparent parameters within which the populating directors operate.
These values might seem antithetical to a director’s need for controlled governance of a workforce but by being amongst those directed a closer and perhaps more prolific set of relationships might be achieved. The drawing style, flat and explicit in its approach, attempts to reinforce such principles.
