"Imagine a permanent outdoor office space equipped with free Wi-Fi, charging stations, shady areas, and flexible seating arrangements." - Emma Kantrowitz
Outdoor office spaces are the latest trend in a string of innovative and ever-evolving solutions for the changing workforce. The rise of the gig economy means on-demand workers now make up a large portion of the workforce (as of 2015, 53 million Americans worked as freelancers), and new technology is enabling companies to hire remote workers in increasing numbers. With their sleek design and modern amenities, outdoor office spaces are providing workers with new options, as well as a little fresh air.
