In the current state of a worker's housing around the world, workers feel forced to live within their work sites. This creates a segregation between low and high income workers. Within San Francisco, being one of the most expensive cities in the world, especially in the SoMa district most workers are either migrant or immigrants who live where they work.”

One precedent that informed the design of the project is Rem Koolhaas' De Rotterdam project.

The masses appear to have slid past each other just enough the produce a sense of disruption or agitation."
