55 Broadway, London’s first skyskraper is for sale


London’s first skyscraper was built as the Headquater of the world’s first metro system. Thanks to the Hidden London initiative I have visited it. Hilarious. It is the building for the kind of organizations that the new modernity at that time brought: a whole hierarchy for the administrative and management support to get the machines in the Underground running. Fit for purpose – the big thinking … (:

The organization of offices follows the principles of hierarchy... each lower office is under control and supervision of a higher one.

Max Weber

While the information flows for running the Underground needed a hierarcy for efficiency, the decentralized digital infrastructure brings the organizational networks along. Within Threefold digital infrastructure each individual will get its own 3bot to manage production, consumption and much more.

55 Broadway is for sale …. ! Surprised ?
