Jeuneville, scheduled for completion in 2025 in Paris, is a modular environment for live, work and play by French design firm Ateliers Jean Nouvel. With a focus on sustainability, the mixed-use spaces will provide living options for 1,500 residents and offices for over 6,000 people and shops, outdoor areas, and even a school.
Companies are moving away from location-based work, and are instead using time zones to mark virtual office boundaries for remote workers. In February 2021, Spotify announced their new Work From Anywhere program, which stipulates that employees can work from any geographical location within a specified time zone. LogMeIn, a provider of cloud-based services that facilitate remote working, is also adopting time zone work policies. One benefit of time zone working, LogMeIn chief information officer Ian Pitt explains, is that it builds a remote sense of community and bolsters corporate culture for distributed teams.
