The post-cubicle office and its discontents
from The New York Times
From March 3:
For a century or more, office design has been our most useful metaphor for workers’ frustration. The color-sapped tedium of office life runs like a flickering current through the warrens of white-collar fiction — from Bartleby impassively facing his brick wall to Frank Wheeler caged in his dark cubicle in "Revolutionary Road." The fluorescence, the screens, the fabric-wrapped plywood dividers: They're demoralizing, humiliating.
