Do It For Detroit – one of my most favorite “Isms” per say.
Today I’d like to share an Article from the New York Times that was published on July 11th 2014 ” The Post-Post Apocalyptic Detroit “.
In 2011, I worked at Quicken Loans in Downtown Detroit. The HQ had recently been relocated downtown Detroit in Campus Martius right off Woodward Ave. Did you know Woodward Avenue was platted a road in 1805? or that the location of the first mile (1.6 km) of concrete roadway in the country was WOODWARD AVE ? Later on in the summer i’ll post about the Woodward Dream Cruise.
Okay Okay — back to the article about Detroit – because what else do you have to really be doing right now !!?
A quote I took from the article to get you intrigued enough to click the link above that discusses the WORK PLACE ENVIRONMENT. I’d truly prefer to never have to work in a closed off grey cubicle … as for the QUBE thats a whole different story… !
“Above the workers hover decorative, spacecraft-like orbs, in peach and pink and aquamarine, matching the colors of the cabinetry and carpeting. The overall atmosphere resembles “The Wolf of Wall Street” as art-directed by Dr. Seuss. “
This line made me laugh because I worked with the design team to invent this awesome area ! The group now goes by D POP check out the gallery photos from the Qube !
You spend about a third or more of your day in your office, studio, classroom, lab or what not … odds are you sit for most of it too. dPOP is what you’ve been dreaming of ! The team beats down old boring blahhhh offices & bumps them up! If you didn’t click the link from above … Do It Now.
