Spatial Development and New Work Environments
In an increasingly global economy and digital society, working environments change and therefore also the requirements placed on the spatial mobility of individuals and households. This applies primarily but not exclusively to higher skilled, non-routine activities. These processes contribute to spatial structural changes which are manifested, among other things, in the formation and strengthening of polycentric spatial structures and metropolitan cores as places of production and consumption. The research focuses on the interaction between economic metropolisation and residential and everyday mobility as well as new processes related to the blurring of boundaries between work and private life. In addition to residential relocations there is also a focus on the emergence of highly mobile lifestyles such as multi-local and transnational modes of working, which are interpreted as complex individual-environment interaction.
