The purpose of this research was to understand how to create productive and enjoyable collaboration spaces in open work and learning environments. These researchers focused on understanding how visual and auditory distractions affect the group while working collaboratively, and how these distractions can be reduced for providing effective collaboration spaces. These researchers utilized qualitative and quantitative methods to conduct this research including observations of collaborative groups, photo studies, personal interviews, as well as conducting surveys. Data collected was analyzed by sorting and clustering photos, behavior and journey mapping and survey results. Data was synthesized using the Elito method to extract insights and implications based on the observations, photos and video recordings, interviews and surveys. A correlation was found that suggests there are patterns in the amount of visual and acoustical privacy the different personality types prefer. It was also learned that while students may prefer to have more acoustic and visual distractions, it may not be beneficial towards their productivity or collaboration within the group. The researchers hope that this will inform designers how to create spaces that are more conducive to group collaboration.
