Research gives us a moment to reflect on our completed work and explore what went wrong and what we did right – and then to share this with our colleagues and clients so we continue to improve. Often it is typology-specific, looking in detail at certain sectors in our portfolio. As the Morris+Company portfolio of workplace buildings grows, so too does our research work in this important sector.

Styles of work are changing rapidly and our architecture needs to take account of both current trends and future developments. In response, we have created a short publication that looks at the future of offices, and how the structures we are designing can accommodate a more fluid, tech-driven attitude to working life.
