9TO5

Hyper-connected co-working space that broadcasts localized knowledge and receives worldwide commands to accelerate the creative process. Operating as open source software, all elements of the space are modifiable by users, regardless of location. Though the initial iteration is intended as a pop-up, the goal is to make “9to5” a permanent installation by threading itself into an Atlanta community space. Also, free coffee always.
