Creative cubicles

I'm one of the lucky, Dilbert era people that gets to work in a cubicle in an open office environment. The back wall of my cube is ~5 ft 6 inches high, two sides are 4 feet high, and the final side is the "door". That open environment can be distracting when you're trying to focus -- like when you're writing something. I have to put on headphones sometimes to shut out the rest of the world.

This page has some interesting pictures taken during a tour of Pixar. Scroll down about 1/3 of way and you'll see how Pixar handled setting up "cubicles" in a creative way for their animators. Looks like a fun environment.
