    A great reminder, Noah. We extend that thinking into dining spaces that become Commons areas and serveries that allow for demonstrations and even perhaps cooking classes.

    Thanks Scott! That's exactly the kind of idea we need to ponder more often!

    Do you feel that a flexible wall is still successful even if it's use can be quantified as 'seldom' or less than intended by the design team? I'm a proponent of flexibility, but am curious if we overprescribe mobile walls over more generally flexible lifetime walls as in your Panther Lake example.

    Noah, Would it be an idea having these flexible wall systems with whiteboard paint, making these walls multi functional XXL whiteboards?

    I absolutely think that "flexible walls" technically described as "operable partitions", should offer writing opportunities, tackable surfaces, and acoustical absorbsion. I do think they are perhaps over prescribed, but also critical to employ in many cases.

    Hand! I just saw your comment! Yes... why not make more surfaces writable? And, ideally, the writable surface is also magnetic or tackable allowing for numerous teaching aids and student work to be pinned up. If someone invents a surface that is writable , tackable, AND acoustically absorbative the we are really getting somewhere!
