Solution

The future of work spaces is that they aren't "there" anymore. Employees are always "en route" in an ever-growing, interconnected global society. There is more time being spent in virtual meetings and international calls, less time being tied to one place. The future of work will become more mobile, flexible, and transitory - offering an unprecedented opportunity for geographic independence. The once-desired corner office with a window will be replaced by the mobile office with a 360 view of any city in the world: a pop-up work office that allows you to work anywhere you are. It's part architecture, part transit, and part technology - a modular, mobile cubicle that can be "parked" and aggregated anywhere. The traditional office building, segregated by walls and confined by location, is reimagined as a dispersed fleet of connected mobile offices that have the ability to shift, connect and aggregate - to exist in different cities and have a fully-working office in commute.

Describe the challenge that the team faces:
The team faces challenges of working together as a distributed team, existing in different places. There is often a need for coming together and working collaboratively, not just from a screen or hologram. As more workers, teams, and companies become distributed, remote, and globalized, there is a need for teams to be more productive "en route", so they can work both together or remotely on-the-go, and while they are en-route to their destinations, where they can meet physically in person.
Briefly describe your solution:
​The Office En Route breaks the geographical boundaries and challenges office hierarchal, spatial, and organizational norms. It encourages limitless collaboration and the ability to work flexibly on-the-go. It's part architecture, part transit, and part technology - a modular, mobile cubicle that can be "parked" and aggregated anywhere - to exist in different cities and have a fully-working office in commute.
Explain how it improves teamwork and solves the problems we encounter today:
Having an office that is mobile allows the distributed teams to live and exist in different cities. It makes working on-the-go both desirable and easy, fun and safe.
Explain how it works in 5 steps:
1. Start the day later - Mobicle pods show up when you need them 2. Work in commute - Start being productive the minute you walk out the door 3. Carpool with other workers/teammates and work while you're getting where you need to be 4. Share the space - Visit the Mobicle Meetups, community centers where you can have team meetings, host events, or even be active in the shared workplace gym, rock climbing walls, or stop by for the daily yoga or meditation classes 5. Nap on the way home!
