Organizational Spaces engages various aspects of work-related settings and their relationships to their 'inhabitants', from employees at all levels to clients or customers, and from visitors to onlookers at a greater remove. Spatial settings are coming more and more to figure explicitly in analyses of organizations and organizational practices, as seen in recently published works. Studies of organizational spaces have ranged in focus from examining the role of organizations' headquarters and other buildings' spatial design in communicating organizational meanings to onlookers near and far, to the allocation and use of space for communicating organizational meanings internally. Other studies explore general, theoretical questions concerning the meanings of built spaces the extent to which these meanings are central to an organization's identity or investigate spatial elements that communicate the organization's brands and goals.
