The HUB Weaving Work Bridges


3.In our current trends for work, people seek flexibility between work life and Our design draws people to walk to different hubs through elevated bridges and coaxes daily life. IN 2040 how will cultural and technological advances transform our others to more social settings and interactions. Conversations, sharing, and small-talk are important to connect humans to other humans, we need to make spaces which draw perception of a desirable workplace? humans together in a non-fragmented way.

A desirable work place will transform in the future, we see rising trends in different work appeals. Working from home, cafes, and remotely can be desirable but a structured and formal setting is less important nowadays. Past businesses operations are changing due to technology and this ever advancement allows for more openness to try and do things in an alternative light and spirit. Technology will always improve but the thing which remains unchanged are human needs in the context of a larger society. We use technology as tool like working with paper and pens, but it does not necessarily mean we want to be living inside a robotic workplace. Work will change in that humans will seek better opportunities for work and also conditions for working. We also wanted to stress in our design the flexibility of the workshop studio spaces which are open to the public and community while at the same time embracing technology. The ground can be described as the public interaction spaces and as you continue to higher levels, workers are able to focus on their individual work process and in more privacy. If they choose workers, have the option to speak and talk with individuals interested in there area of expertise for more opportunities to collaborate or gain skills.

4. What types of occupations, and individuals will be able to inhabit and participate in this new paradigm of future work spaces? How does their background help to foster a sense of community?

8 Questions What?

1. What is work? Work is a process whereby an individual is part of a team, larger collective in one’s own field and has the responsibility to contribute to society at large. What is important is to know that together we make something great for the world. In a perfect world, work is the opportunity to put our individual gifts, skills, and personal passions to help society maintain a level of balance in social, economic, and political realms. For some work is a means of survival, in thinking about future work, our needs will gravitate towards less physical labor and more utilization of creative, critical, and technology based skills.

The rise in technology skilled jobs has spurred a focus on STEM studies. The gap between educational background and informal backgrounds keeps both parties from successfully entering the work force. We want to integrate in general two background portraits of professionals and workers. Those with formal education and those who have skills, training, and life experiences. The belief that an individual needs to follow a formal education to work is starting to fall away. We see more individuals turning against formal paths and seeking alternative ways to achieve and be apart of the work force. We see through the McKinsey&Company research article Technology, Jobs, and work of the future, that companies today are experiencing a need to incorporate more technology and universities are lacking the tools that prepare students for the technologically driven economy. The article stressed more collaboration between the private sector and research based entities, our design tries to bridge the two together. The types of individuals drawn to this hub would be those who are self-motivated, participatory in defining their own values and collaborating with other who share similar ideas. The Hub we propose invite people of all backgrounds to come into a space which fosters creativity, focused, and concentrated efforts to use technology which expands the possibility to help the world. This possibility needs spaces which are diverse and integrate a variety of experiences and activities.

5. How can design foster human and technology interaction and integration 2. How important is job satisfaction, salary, and the people you engage with for the year 2040? daily? Satisfaction is very important and choosing what you want to devote your waking hour of the day towards, because we are using our productive and rational minds for a large portion of our lives. Job satisfaction is largely skewed by our modern approach to work as being one which gives you finances to survive and sustain life and that can take away from enjoyment. Salary is important to sustain life and to do with discretion the things that are enjoyable. Job satisfaction increases when we are connected to our truest desires and by learning and cultivation these sills and finding the right opportunities to work and do what we can to contribute. We have to question why we do the things we do. The people we engage with is crucial now with the rise in technology being beneficial but can diminish human satisfaction and interaction. Too much individualism can create problems related to social fragmentation and we want in the future to continue building these bridges and platforms for human interaction.

The spaces in the design are similar to how a city works but at a micro level for a population of 5,000 workers. To create a sort of web of connecting paths weather through bridges, paths, or outdoor trellises, we want to offer a space where the hubs act as the heart for technology and the paths as bridges for humans to disconnect and be reminded of their essence and true motivations. The human daily experience changes moment to moment, we get bored, tired, motivated, focused, and unmotivated, this is part of the process for seeking better solutions.

6. In your design, how is the design radical in challenging the notion of work today and how it will be incorporated into society in the year 2040? The design is radical in that we propose to flip the current work experience by drawing individuals to interact with nature and the outdoors. We perceive work to be held in offices indoors with typical layout of either cubicles, open floor plans, and also office rooms.

7. In thinking about the program for the weaving work spaces together is it important to draw the human experience to interact with technology? Wherever technology is necessary; this would be the only reason to bring the human in contact with technology. This means machines, computers, robots, drones are only necessary for function and adding for efficiency. However, technology being humanized is unnecessary and this is why we stress more human interaction. Human are already acting as robots with our daily lives sitting in front of computers, smart phones, and smart tvs. This necessitates a new integration back to being connected to humans.

8. If you could describe a day in a life of a worker here what would their story be and what would be a typical daily experience?

Worker A …Her name is Mel and she works in the “Hive B”, Environmental Solutions. She just woke up and doesn’t know what she will be working on today. She needs to check APSG – Automatic Problem Solution enerator – to find a proper task. She goes out from her small flat onto the ground floor, walks through the garden and goes upstairs to the working hub. She walks through the gallery, meets her friends and colleagues at their working halfrooms. Half-room is a space with a untra-high sensibility of air, temperature, light, etc. The smart module established inside reacts on the position of the hands, connects thoughts of the worker with a virtual model. There are no computers, chairs and desks, but sensible walls that collect information and project the data on its surface. People are working with data, their hands and their imagination. …Mel reaches her working room. She concentrates her mind on an environmental issue she wants to solve; APSG creates a list of possible tasks and guidelines, on the base of her strengths, experience and education. Worker B …It’s 7 am. Anton is on the road on his way to the HUB. He was not lucky to have a good education, but he is smart and tempted to learn. He is sure there will be a place for him. He enters the most appealing for him HIVE Tower. He walks through, looks how people work. He has a quiet space to observe. He walks through different working areas, in the gardens talks with people that are on breaks. Finally, Anton picks several tasks for a day, gets the keys for his mini-flat in the gardens and starts his working day.

The Who?

We are looking to re-envision what work would mean in the future given the chances that spaces will continue to evolove to fit future needs. The age of hard work and sweat known to many former generations will have to apply to new methods of work efficiency. We predict that the work spaces will evolve according to the rise in technology and an emphasis on utilizing creative spaces to help strengthen collaboration between different departments. First we determine the following criteria: who are the individuals and their backgroud, the purpose of combining a range of individuals, and lastly what types of vectors can be created in the working dynamic of our new hub. This Hub network, works to spread out and magnify the necessary spaces which will eventually make work for people: efficient, more purposeful work, highly engaged collaborations, inspirational, produced more focused energy, stimulate balances in logical and creative solutions.

Spatial story How?

The experience of walking through this circular space offers one the opportunity to find knowledge in a 360 degree experience. The perks of being surrounded by people and information means that humans are able to pick up unconsciously the vibes and the new innovations happening. Work spaces are multi-faceted and can involve several types of atmospheres. In this space, there ranges in part and form areas for collaboration, academic and private research, and future digital libraries. The plans portrays the foreseeable activities workers will have on a daily bases. The multi-layered structure of the HUB is self-sustainable, as it is functioning on the first level – with big industrial companies (agriculture, solar energy, etc.), which is very stable and predictable. The second level is learning centers, which are less organized and more flexible. The third level is a co-working centers which are unpredictable but full of flexibility, action and “real life”.

The axonometric is a depiction of how the concept of the bridges and pathways help to foster more human interaction and also engagement in the landscape. The intention is to connect the specific hubs to one another in this diverse program of businesses, institutions, and employees. Our hope is that both private entities and also academic or researched based entities would be able to collaborate in sharing skills and knowledge in phyiscally connected fabric of architecture and design.
