Co-working is redefining the way we work. Around the world, people are collaborating to create a new kind of economy that supports community and innovation while preserving valuable resources. This illustrated survey of spaces dedicated to co-working features 30 of the most impressive office spaces around the world. Google Campus in London, The HUB's global network of sites, and more off-the-radar examples such as Makeshift Society in San Francisco are just a few of the spaces profiled. Each is illustrated via a range of wide-angle and close up photographs, offering readers page after page of inspiring ideas--from a repurposed shipping container to a beautiful cushion made from a vintage silk scarf. Whether you're daydreaming from a 14th-floor cubicle or looking for ideas on how to launch your own start-up, this unique book will stir your imagination as it offers endless possibilities for co-working.
