Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst leidis oma koha, kuna tegeleb väga paljusid puudutavate küsimustega: töökeskkonna ja loovuse seostega. Töökeskkonna kujundamise mõju alahindamine ei ole väga arukas, kuid sellealast teadmust ei ole kujundajatel – kelle heasoovlikkuses ei ole põhjust kahelda – sageli ette näidata või otsustavad nad seda mingil põhjusel varjata. Kõik, kes on pikemalt Eesti avalikus teenistuses töötanud, on ilmselt märganud mitmeid töökeskkonda puudutavaid trende. Avatud kontor, ühismajad jms on vaid näited.
Some scholars have suggested that owing to the scarcity of generalizable research findings, companies have relied on stereotyped models of creativity in designing their offices (De Paoli & Ropo, 2017; De Paoli et al., 2017). […] Considering creative spaces requires integrating two heterogeneous lines of academic enquiry: physical space and creativity. This segregation of disciplines makes it almost impossible for any single scholar to acquire deep expertise in all potentially relevant academic discourses.

Moreover, the physical contexts of organizations were long treated ‘as neutral settings; in Foucault’s terms, fixed, dead, and immobile containers or settings’ (Taylor & Spicer, 2007, p. 325).
Autorid selgitava, mida ja kuidas teevad:
In this paper, we perform a review that lies at the intersection of two literaturesorganizational creativity and the physical space of organizations. […] We focus on creativity in an organizational context and follow the widely accepted definition of organizational creativity by Woodman et al. (1993, p. 293), that is ‘the creation of a valuable, useful new product, service, idea, procedure, or process by individuals working together in a complex social system’.
These dimensions explain which element of workspace is studied, what social dynamics are targeted, and how space and creativity and their relations are conceived.

However, some physical barriers, such as walls, have been found to increase communication (Hatch, 1987), which has been explained by increased privacy and opportunities for personal communication (Oldham & Brass, 1979).

When examining collaboration among different work groups, some researchers have found that distance and physical obstacles, such as walls or floors, have negative consequences because informal and spontaneous interactions become more difficult (Kraut et al., 2002).
The dimensions encompass: what elements of workspace are targeted, which social dynamics are analysed and how the relation between physical space and creativity is conceived. This framework can be conceptualized as an analytical lens through which to consider the three directions for future theorizing.
As a consequence of the broader conception of physical space, the relation of creativity and physical space is not unidirectional or effect-like but complex and multidirectional.
