Improving outdoor working environment

After years of research and empiric studies, behavioural scientists and psychologists are absolutely positive that there is something wrong with our idea of human motivation. This is how we think it works: You get a reward - you perform better. Basic philosophy of carrots and sticks. What studies have shown is not only that this approach doesn’t work, but it often does more harm than good.

Making public spaces more social: simple yet creative ways to do so

Throughout history, public spaces have been a significant part of urban life. In ancient times, public squares were the main spots for discussing town issues and practising democracy. With politics moving into the hands of monarchs and, later, into parliaments, the role of public spaces changed as well. They became places of social encounter, where friends ran into each other and where cultures mixed, building strong and diverse communities. They give identity to cities, making them distinctive and unique. Just think of Central Park in New York or Parc Güell in Barcelona - true landmarks of these cities.
