  1. 1. W A N D E R LU S T an irresistable desire to connect with others entreprenual civic-minded community seeker adventure seeker local global self-motivated participant subcultural on the fringe co-conspiritor co-creator co-innovator customizer the wanderer Making workplace out of open space & open-sourcing public space by working nomads. Working Nomads are the freelance worker or independent contractor working without a permanent employer and a corporate office. They strive to find a meaningful role in the work they do with independence to work at their own schedule. Independence comes at a cost. Without a corporate office, the nomad lacks the ability to have casual interaction among co- workers, interaction that enhances creativity and innovation in the work they do. We propose a system with the ability to build community both virtually and physically for the nomadic worker. Borrowing from co-working environments and the “Pop-Up” restaurant and retail culture, we propose a means to organize and temporarily create work hives where nomads may work wherever they desire and, more importantly, meet and socialize with their peers. youtube.compisforprops.comusatoday.compicstopin.comshoutoutstudio.comballetstudio.chcupcakesforbreakfast.com whatkatieate.com autoblog.com
  2. 2. THE WANDERER COMMUNITY: MAKING CONNECTIONS digitally connected and locally embedded SPACE ON-DEMAND APP Instead of the typical space leasing model, an app can be utilized to book an office on a needs basis. Digitial nomads desire freedom from long term commitments and want to enjoy the flexi- bility of reserving a co-working space on-demand. LOCATION MAP AVAILABILITY Applications can provide a window into the look and feel of the co-working environment while also displaying what workspaces are currently available. COMMUNITY MEMBER PROFILES The co-working community has an affinity for seeking out like-minded people as well as people who can offer diverse perspectives. Community member profiles and avatars augment the possibility for serendipitous encounters via data points that showcase the individual’s background, skills, and interests stimulating discourse around projects for potential collaboration. LIFESTYLE CLUSTERS Lifestyle clusters illustrated through heat maps convey densities of certain pop- ulations of people. By 2020, there will be 65 million people in the workforce who will consider themselves freelancers who will want to connect with others who share their same vision and philosophical beliefs. Heats maps and sensors will be a driving force of the future of co-working. OPEN-SOURCE MODEL Participants want to be actively engaged in open-sourced experiments where people can collaborate to transform wasted public spaces into activity based envi- ronments within the urban landscape. Collaborative consumption of the Sharing Economy will be a catalyst in rethinking the commons as a hub for socializing and incubating ideas. SOCIAL ENTERPRISE Landlords, landowners, developers, local communities, and other stakeholders will want to be involved in dialogues that reanimate abandoned or underutilized public spaces in order to provide opportunities for community benefit and social enterprise.
  3. 3. THE WANDERER COMMUNITY: MAKING CONNECTIONS harnessing those connections SWARM INTELLIGENCE (HIVE MODEL) The collective intelligence and behavior of insects can help humans un- derstand the effectiveness of collaboration and group interaction. Swarms can consistently make good and timely decisions as long as they seek a diversity of knowlege. Grid70 is the hive model of company-to-company working. It is a design hub meant to foster creativity and cross-pollination in a building that houses four different companies. FOCUS WORK While collaborative settings are integral to the success of co-working environments, privacy areas where a co-worker can seek refuge to engage in deep, rich, and productive thought in a place that is free from a myriad of distractions is an amenity of great importance. DISCOVERY & SERENDIPITIOUS ENCOUNTERS Nomadic co-working involves a great deal of unexpected consequences. Wanderers must learn to accept and adapt to constant change and em- brace losing their sense of time and place. Open-mindedness, flexibility, and fluidity lead to the circulation and exchange of fresh ideas and shared experiences. Agile and permeable spaces promulgate casual conversation and interdisciplinary interaction. TOUCHDOWN SPACES The need for dynamic and easily configurable touchdown spaces is a major design trend in office environments and an area where nomadic workers gravitate towards. These areas provide a variety of assembly options for various desired work experiences. Adaptive and evolutionary design is not only valuable to the introvert or extrovert to exert control over their workspace but also imperative to accomodate the workstyles of future generations. EVENTS/CONTINUING EDUCATION Spaces designed to host workshops, innovation labs, and events in order to foster collaborative learning and thought leadership in a diverse range of disciplines.
