What if buildings could anticipate people’s needs and adapt workspaces in real time; optimizing human performance and personalizing the human experience? The program conceives a new agile workplace inspired by multi-disciplinary research on autonomous vehicles and spacecraft living quarters. The research explores how we rethink the workplace based on the user experience of autonomous vehicles which have no drivers, just riders. Spacecraft being developed as shuttles to Mars provide us insights on self-sufficient living environments operated with autonomous technology. The findings lead us to approach workplace design with a heightened appreciation for the importance of human wellness, sustainability, and adaptive environments.
