Beschrijving

The paper explores employees’ aesthetic experiences of designed organisational space. These experiences are important because designs are incomplete until they are realised in action. However, one of the main issues in this is the difficulty to grasp employees’ perceptions and judgements of spatial aesthetics. To explore these employees’ aesthetic experiences the paper studies two organisational buildings of Dutch telecom operator KPN were the author was both telecom engineer and organisational anthropologist. In an auto-ethnographic style two corporate buildings that triggered opposed aesthetic experiences are described. The paper reflects upon these experiences and the methodological consequences for studying spatial settings in organisations.
