Industrial Machine Makeover

Project Statement:

With the exploded working population, many employees are squeezed into a large, open office. As a result, employees can not only be distracted by others but also passively invade others' privacy. This can harm employees' mental status and working efficiency. Therefore, in the era of sharing economy (sharing living/ sharing transportation), this project brings sharing mobile work pods to CBD, creating a space for employees dealing with personal or group affairs. The highlight of the mobile work pods is that people can move horizontally and vertically to look at the city view from different perspectives and get more inspiration.
