Will the next great novel be written in a coworking space?There has always been an aura surrounding the writer. We imagine the greatest novels, the sweetest novellas, and most heart wrenching words can only be realized in a solitary environment. One must suffer (alone) to produce the most genius work…or is that just a myth?
The evolution of coworking spacesToday over 100,000 people are working in coworking spaces, that’s more than in the offices of Apple, Google or Facebook. Yet, coworking spaces work more decentralized, align their rooms to the wishes of their members, and not vice versa. A steady increase in coworkers leads to the creation of more (and bigger) coworking spaces. But how do we see these work stations in the future? We spoke with architect Kim Wang, who focuses on coworking spaces that you should look out for.

The growth of the hybrid coworking spaceWe are often asked, what is the best design for a coworking space?

But it also relates to the business model for the coworking space.
Will Coworking Spaces Be The New Classrooms?Web design, programming and new technology are constantly evolving, resulting in students entering classrooms with knowledge that is already obsolete. How do we bridge the gap between what the education system teaches us and what the new generations need to succeed in the 21st century? Coworking could be the solution, and the good news is: even universities have discovered the benefits of coworking. Perhaps coworking will become the new way to educate the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
