The politics of space, as advocatedtirelessly by Lefebvre, ismaterialized as ubiquitous nets of power relations, rending all the office spaces a colosseum of power.
Every image of space emerges from the matrix of social activities and relations it contains, namely the interaction among people, objects and the space itself.The politics of space, as advocatedtirelessly by Lefebvre, is materialized as a ubiquitous net of power relations, rendering all kinds of spaces a colosseum of power. In this aspect, office spaces are especially prone to become ‘battlefields’ of power struggles, a character that, rather than enhancingworking experience and efficiency, often results in depressing places overloaded with tension and stress.
