Open Space Office featured on Core77 website.
"What's always killed me about working in offices, even ones filled with exciting design projects, is the crushing sameness of the environment. Day-in, day-out the walls never move, the lighting never changes. I'm certain my ancestors belonged to a nomadic tribe and that I've inherited their need for regular changes of scenery in order to feel productive.
This occurred to me while viewing Porto-based photographer Tito Mouraz' "Open Space Office" project, a photo essay shot at a Portugese rock quarry. It took three years to complete, and the workers who toiled there got to see their "office" change regularly as they transformed the organic into the rectilinear and descended ever deeper into the earth."
