The new office type here proposed is designed for any and every type of conceivable worker: humans (with or without the need of mobility devices), animals (exploited or domesticated), and machines (operated or autonomous). This Office of Diversity is an apparently post- political space where workers, as “entrepreneurs of themselves,” auto-exploit themselves through the fluidly interchangeable conditions of labor and leisure, freedom and domination. The lack of distinction between labor and leisure results in a messy environment that resembles a circus or a modern-day Noah’s Ark.
Using the helicoid as its only geometric definition, the Office of Diversity is designed by intersecting two helicoids and results in a continuous unobstructed ramp accessible to all types of workers.
