The Pilgrim's Guide to the Workplace

Agustin Chevez

(Total Duration: 2hrs 12min) Hoping to incubate a unique idea about workplace design, I walked alone for 42 days from Melbourne to Sydney. My pilgrimage delivered 34 Signposts, a collection of insights which hold the promise to guide us to a better place to work. While firmly positioned within the shifting context of work, the Signposts point away from reactive solutions with a short shelf life. Instead, these markers are infused with a diversity of thought instilled by the pilgrimage and reclaim the forgotten qualities of solitude, boredom, adversity, and absurdity as mechanisms to deliver innovation and create improved working environments.I write from the perspective of a pilgrim, architect, workplace consultant, and researcher and invite you to join me as a fellow pilgrim. You will be rewarded with a journey that revisits our assumptions about the way we use space to host the ever-evolving notion of work – an expedition leading not only to better versions of the workplace, but a better version of ourselves.
