Called ‘Qworkntine’, these modular work pods are designed to help employees safely return to the workplace as lockdown measures ease over the coming months. Each one contains an airtight seal and just enough space to get everything done. For security purposes, each employee is authenticated with facial recognition technology, thus eliminating the need for a door handle.

This would be a prime spot for whale watching during their migration. It was designed in partnership with Marianne Levinsen Landskab, JAC Studios, Thornton Tomasetti, Nils Øien and Anders Kold. The structure will be 186-miles north of the Arctic Circle.
