The dwelling of the future. The image of an idea

Eduardo Torroja Foundation

July 2013

International competion

 

A home for a life time... In the future, an adaptation of the traditional methods for designing homes will be required. It will be necessary to solve different situations of occupation and use of living spaces. New forms of grouping, the use of the home as a workplace, the introduction of new electronic systems with the latest technology ... We must redraw the so far established habitability.

The proposal can be seen as a box on a surface. A box containing all the user requirements and offering them just in the right time. Thus the house will be so changeable, mobile and adaptable to all social and transformable situations throughout the day as uses change throughout hours goes by.

The box and mainly the neutral space that surrounds it must be prepared to allow maximum flexibility. Mechanical invasion is already a fact, and lots of pipes and ducts are already a part of our homes. This trend will increase in the future with the benefit that once and for all every harmful emission will be removed.
