Hi Dan, really interesting and sounds like a fun thing to research! I entirely agree that your environment can have a huge effect on your ability to "be creative". I think office spaces are often set out with little consideration of this and our approach to creativity can often reflect the rigidity of our workspace. The two most important things for me when I'm trying to begin the creative process are space and movement. Our office, like many others, is made up of lines of desks with little space inbetween them; there aren't other spaces to go to. I think this is important - remaining in the same position at the same desk can cause inertia and passivity. This is obviously linked to movement too. I know for a fact I need to get up out of my seat if I'm going to get some ideas flowing. I think your point about the external environment is important too, and I think just stepping outside, just to think away from your familiar workspace, can be regenerative. Unfortunately, the view out of my window is of a brick wall!
