5 Inspiring Collaboration Spaces to Bolster Creativity and Innovation at Work

When it comes to casting vision, crafting strategy, and cultivating creativity and innovation, the built environment makes a big difference. Comfortable seating, ample lighting, writing surfaces for capturing ideas and mapping touchpoints, and more all support collaboration and stimulate the flow of ideas that lead to greater success, however you define it for your organization.

So how do you create that kind of space at your workplace? Here are a few ideas from recent Benjamin Roberts projects to get the wheels turning:
