Digital technology and the Internet may have changed our lifestyles over the last decade, but so far they have had very little impact on our dwellings.
Looking to the most innovative talents from around the world, FutureHouse presents ninety private and community housing projects that challenge the accepted norms of our living spaces and offer a dazzling array of ingenious solutions to meet with the widely changing needs and desires of our global society. Against the background of globalisation and urbanization, these designers - most of whom were raised and educated at the dawn of the digital age - confront such issues as individualizing collective housing and spatial multigenerational flexibility, radically reimagining how we can - could - live.
Essays by international critics such as Frederic Migayrou (France), Bart Lootsma (The Netherlands), Andreas Ruby (Germany), Manuel Gausa (Spain), Kyong Park (U.S.A), and Christian Girard (France) complement the work of avant-garde and experimental architects from every corner of the globe.
