The floating office pods dubbed Enclaves are the brainchild of Agnieszka Bialek, a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland. The idea arises due to the pandemic's shifting working conditions that have contributed to remote working.
These co-working spaces are connected to the river bed and attached to one another in a modular design. As it is still in its conceptual phase, the possibility for 3D printing remains a viable option for this project. The materials used would be waterproof and recyclable to maintain sustainability. The goal is to decrease land footprints and offer a peaceful remote working environment.
The Enclaves design contrasts the river dramatically with soft, curved edges and a contemporary look.
