Brands are offering escapist experiences in urban environments in the form of architectural pods with varying purposes. These structures serve to offer distractions from daily lives in a way that is simultaneously private and interactive. This comes with the continued population increase in urban centers, where consumers are increasingly seeking easy-to-access forms of escapism to take them out of their daily lives and the overwhelming nature of high population densities.
