Pandemic Research #4
Will we ever return to the office? Why did we ever work in an office in the first place? Can work exist without the office? What is an office for? And what is the future of work?
These are the questions we have addressed in our latest research paper. We look into the history of the office. Identify the reasons we built offices. And analyze the accelerating trends in office design brought about by the pandemic.
The pandemic has made it clear that we can be productive remotely in work clusters with a certain limit. Each human enterprise, however, is more than a work cluster. A successful enterprise operates at various scales and has a varied range of networking needs.
We have developed systems to determine the right scale of work clusters for your enterprise. The architecture of work needs to focus on the creation of spaces for our new office networks. Smart office design must enable spatial overlap across work clusters.
Contact CAZA to see how we use the latest in computational planning analytics to help your enterprise meet the future needs of enhanced networking. We can enhance your office architecture through a behavioral design approach that balances productivity and creativity, evaluates the best workspace solutions, and determines networking goals while assessing your office’s healthfulness

La Salle Academic Complex, De La Salle University, LTI Spine Road, Laguna Blvd, Biñan, Laguna, Philippines
CAZA won the Global Design & Architecture Awards in the Education category
Inspired by how nature makes room for growth, our design for the New Academic Complex at La Salle University Laguna combines the structured norms of civilized knowledge with the supple agility of nature.
The academic complex accommodates a changing curriculum by allowing for multiple classroom configurations within an efficient 9-square structural grid set inside an organic-shaped building deck with room for gardens, balconies and breakout spaces.
This project represents how we can advance learning by making buildings that combine the ordered systems of scientific understanding with the elasticity of natural forms— an eco-driven flexibility for the 21st century!

Coastal Architecture in the age of climate change has become an increasingly precarious proposition, report CAZA. The Ocean Center project is designed to anticipate massive change: both ground and structure modulate natural systems enabling them to flow through in a measured and calculated way.
The effect is that these natural forces activate architectural space at varying material intensities replacing the usual modernist paradigm of autonomous occupation with a feedback model relating human activity to environmental conditions.
Markets, local shops, an oceanographic museum, apartments, a convention center and playfields are held together as disparate parts with multiple orientations that create the feeling of being within a micro-village with no outside but instead with a profusion of fractional insides that connect us to other places extending the loop of nature’s deep connectivity.

BCDA Iconic Building in Manila
The new BCDA building is both an ecological machine and environmental museum: the vertical arboretum harvests water to display plant species that live in different parts of the Philippines, the urban farm reduces the building’s heat load while supplying local produce to the public, and the wellness center turns a fitness hub into a net-zero energy display.
