A Co-Working, Co-Sleeping Megaplex Is on the Horizon


Concept art and blueprints for the towering hotel/office hybrid from a mysterious company called Spacious surfaced on the web this week—I found it, notably, through a tongue-in-cheek tweet from Buzzfeed's Caroline O'Donovan.

Yes, it looks a bit like a cross between an Apple Store and ?the Borg, and yes, it's to be made of shipping containers with assurances that an eye is being made to sustainability. But the most interesting thing, I think, is the vision it posits for the future of work—from the looks of its materials, Spacious is imagining a continued uptick in the flexible (or precarious) workforce, and the number of people who are able to and desirous of the ability to work anywhere, at anytime.
