NECESSARY OFFICE ARCHITECT: PAUL COUDAMY
As tech jobs take over and American working environments (and dress codes) look to the future, they might just look across the Atlantic for inspiration. French architect Paul Coudamy has designed a stunning, organic office space for Beartech (internet provider) called the "Bear Cave". Coudamy used found wood waste from dumpsters and sidewalks to create a fiberous "growth" from floor to ceiling. Whatever your taste, it's nice to see progressive businesses worldwide concern themselves with a comfortable, creative atmosphere rather than suits and stuffiness.
Coudamy's other work includes a cardboard office, similar (in theme anyway) to a cardboard office I wrote about a few months ago created by Joost Van Bleiswijk. Pictures available on his site.
