Wow, and I thought I needed privacy... Why spend so much space on recreational areas and cram people like sardines?

...that does look a bit cramped. With all the other open spaces shown it almost doesn't make sense. Oh well, the executive team is probably packed in just as tightly.

after being crammed together like that for a couple hours those wide open spaces probably feel heavenly.

Some photos, although a bit small, of the same space from when Pixar Canada inhabited it. The workspace photos for each look to be the same location except ILM has at least twice the number of workstations.

Cramped workstations aside, the history of the building is easy to see. When it was a butchers shop, it surely must have been one of the biggest around.

What you need your own room or something in order to work?

Take the front row for instance, it might seem crammed with all the monitors placed tightly next to each other, and the desk on some of them are very messy, thus giving the feeling that there is not enough room, but there is actually only sitting 4 people in that front row of the picture. I think they only needed to stretch each table by 30 cm and everything would be totally fine.

Looks like a bit of a sweatshop to me. Clever framing of the photo, cropping off the manacles fastened to the floor.

I hope this is a joke. Sometimes on forums it is hard to tell without any internet punctuation . It doesn't look spacious but given everyone has a dual monitor setup it can do that.
