2 Questions— Space Change Organizational Trauma & How Do Faculty Use Space?

In our Planning interview with the authors of "Agency and Influence: The Organizational Impact of a New School of Education Building," which will be released tomorrow, two faculty-related questions were raised that I thought worthy of further discussion.

You can watch that interviewlisten to or download that interview (MP3), or read that interview. These questions are independent of the article's content.

Please use the comments to share what you know about related resources such as articles, databases, anecdotes, and so forth.

Question 1: Space Change Organizational Trauma

Do planners typically alert the occupants, such as faculty, who are planning new space, or moving into new space, that the move itself can be organizationally traumatic?

Question 2: How Do Faculty Use Space?

In the case of a building like the education building that is the topic of this interview, do planners study—pre- and post-move—how the faculty use spaces? If so, are the compilations or resources that share the process or results of such studies available?

Thank you for sharing.
