The Changing Nature of Work
Brian Dema

I have thought about this topic from an urban planning perspective. The built environment we have now is largely in support of centralized employment hubs with housing in neighboring hoods/towns and transit linking the two. However with a greater emphasis on the gig economy, the need to house all of a company’s employees in one place is diminished and rather you may see clusters of similarly oriented professionals housed in a work cooperative closer to their homes. People can essentially work anywhere, and their value may no longer be in putting in 40 hours in the office, rather, building the best professional network to attack a problem/task.
