Shut the door on UniAdelaide open floor plans

The flash new Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building is upsetting staff who do not like the open floor plans. According to the Uni Adelaide branch of the National Tertiary Education Union, the working arrangement is “detrimental to productivity, collaboration potential, and morale.”

The union propose “combi offices,” “small private enclosed studies” off shared open spaces and urges the university to learn from the unhappy AHMS experience and consult with all staff about their needs, not just “colleagues in the inner circle” who are “benefitting from the scarce private offices in the space.”

Um, wasn’t there an TV series about this?
