    Many of the architects of these new, beautiful workspaces don't have any actual evidence that they actually deliver the social and financial benefits they claim, they just believe that they will work as envisaged. There is a lot of valuable research being done by organisational psychologists into the impacts of modern open plan workplace designs - for example of evidence-based research on this topic check out Dr Rachael Morrison's work: www.theconversation.com/get-out-of-my-face-were-more-antisocial-in-a-shared-office-space-64734 and a video: www.psychlopaedia.org/work-and-performance/downside-hot-desking/
