Reinventing office space: Architects call for the 'death of the desk'

In what was to be his last public appearance before his death, Steve Jobs detailed to Cupertino city council, California, in 2011 the plans behind Apple's new headquarters - a 71 hectare campus with an enormous O-shaped building for 13,000 employees at its heart. Jobs claimed that they had the opportunity to construct "the best office building in the world", the donut-like plan by Norman Foster hinged not just on aesthetics but also ensuring the possibility for collaboration between workers who would be able to walk around the new campus, a concept which is central to how architects now look at the modern office.
