Interdisciplinary teams have to leave room so that real work can get done. Because they have multiple projects, they try to limit the loss of brainpower by working for days together on one project instead of jumping between tasks.

Working together in this way ensures that people know everything that is going on, and this allows for debate and questioning that comes with bringing diverse thinkers together.

Foster community and creativity

Offices should be designed to facilitate communication, warmth, and interaction. If you want people to be creative and bring their best selves, you can't expect them to stand at the same desk for many hours in a day.

For example, have an outdoor dining area full of plants and a huge, inviting communal table.
