THE THEATRE OF WORK
Written by Clive Wilkinson, Published by Frame Publishers, 2019
Clive Wilkinson’s first book, The Theatre of Work, is part theoretical investigation and part monograph, and proposes a sociological evolution of the relationship between office users and the workplace. Ideas illustrated within build on his experience working with some of the world’s most creative companies over the course of three decades, and the lessons of building creative communities within a new environmental framework that leverages lessons from historic city planning and urban design. Extending the author's historical research explorations, the book features 14 of his firm’s most significant projects as case studies.
