archatlas: Underwater Shark Suite Would you sleep in this shark suite? French design agency Ubi Bene has collaborated with airbnb on an underwater accommodation — not suitable for the faint of heart. 360 degree transparent glass walls encircle a round bed, small side tables, and a bookshelf, offering a panoramic view of 35 live sharks swimming in the surrounding abyss. designed specifically for the Paris Aquarium, the room is submerged 10 meters deep within 3 million liters of water, completely immersing guests in a subaquatic spatial experience. Visitors will have the chance to intimately get to know their ‘roommates’ alongside host Fred Buyle, a freediver and underwater photographer, who will provide an introduction to the often misunderstood life of sharks, and how they are essential to the ecosystem of the oceans.

Groupthink is every team’s nightmare. It’s when people seek consensus and conform to the majority opinion instead of raising dissenting views. It’s a great way to make terrible decisions and shut down the most creative people in your group. And it’s responsible for the Challenger explosion, the botched Bay of Pigs invasion, and the bankruptcy of Polaroid. In all of these cases, people went along with the majority when a silent minority was right. They chose to launch a shuttle despite an engineer arguing that it was too risky in the cold, infiltrate Cuba against the advice of a key expert, and stick with hard copies of photos even though a few insiders saw that digital was the future.
