#176 - Dr. Agustin Chevez On Workplace Architecture, Isolation & Basic Needs

Dr. Agustin Chevez is a specialist in Workplace Architecture and TEDx speaker. He possesses a passion to understand the new relationships between people, space, and technology and how it comes together in our present time.

Agustin starts with giving us his background and Doc asks him what workplace architecture is. He goes on to talk about the benefits from what he has learned in his field, talks about open workspaces vs. cubicles, then touches on the concept of isolation as a positive situation.

Doc gives his two cents on the matter then the two finish up with talking about AI, universal basic income, and the connections we are losing in this day and age.

A very great and tasteful discussion about modern day topics and problems we face in the current world. Lots to take away from this one. Enjoy!
