Abstract

There have been many discussions on office environments, but there have been few studies on the designer relationship with the workplace that they are designing. Given the benefit of the findings of this research, designers might create opportunities for the user to express their emotions through their workplace personalization. In my early field work, I used a participatory design approach and used mock-ups to investigate the main problems and to explore design opportunities in developing new office environments. The findings revealed that meaningful workplaces can be achieved in different way and for different reason according to different needs.
