Architects Among America’s Happiest Workers

A link from Land+Living led me to this article entitled, “Where Do America’s Happiest People Work?” Architects are fourth on the list with 53.5% reporting at very happy! I can tell you from working here at 3six0 that our architects are definitely part of that percentage, and I feel that it is largely do to the workspace. At 3six0 you will find no windowless, gray cubicles. Every desk has a window and the walls are broken down for an open and collaborative space. Music flows in steady streams through the speakers overhead, and inspiration from past projects is never more than a few feet away with architectural models occupying the shelves and desktops. Got a video or a catchy headline to share? Just speak up and people will rise from their desks to crowd around your monitor. It’s a friendly atmosphere and I enjoy working here.
