Hot Wheels

Modern offices are conceived based on the conventional idea that work takes place in a rigid interior environment with an open floor plan or occupied by cubicles, defined by static spatial and temporal schedule. We often hear office workers bring up issues of commute to work and lack of personal mobility within an office.

This thesis aims to challenge the current office designs through an innovative alternative – a micro mobile workspace that is flexible, mobile, modular and seeks to resolve the issues of commute and personal space in an office. Simultaneously, the thesis also seeks to rethink the concept of work as an event not defined by the office space but by the office worker through the plug-in of diverse activities and experiences one can engage in while at work.
