Research Parks for the Knowledge Economy

Pete Engardio of BusinessWeek brings us this article on the future of  research parks.  This type of development is transitioning from the Triangle Park model (an office park built on the urban fringe which requires researchers to drive to home and often to lunch) to a new model where these parks are part of a revitalization process.   These places are now being built in cities, where cheap housing, restaurants, and entertainment are easily accessible.  He cites Spain’s 22@Barcelona, Seoul’s Digital Media City, and Singapore’s One North as the future of the research park.  We can only hope that these more livable working spaces do become the norm.
