This is Future Living

The Future Living house is a testament to the will of design. It took twenty six designers (a feat in itself) to create it. Every technologic leap was analyzed to make sure anything proposed was possible by 2050. It’s a paradigm shift in home resource creation and location. Water uses gravity to generate pressure. Energy is harvested from solar and wind apparatuses. Air, water and waste are cleaned using a living bio wall and everything is recycled when possible.

    Looks neat, fairly easy to construct if modular. I've added it.

    rational thinking process make the modular to work in both structural and cost. most profitable building process has to be cookie-cutting methods.
    the challenge here is how to incorporate enegy efficiency into our everyday living. that will be the definite direction of high tech buildings. i love it.
    next interesting challenge is how to combine rationality into intuitive subjective level of architectural practice.

  • Very innovative home design, as this is need of the hour. Such types of housing models will encourage sustainable living and more people will start using clean energy options like solar, wind, etc. Sustainable homes will not only help us reduce the CO2 emissions, conserve water, recycling waste but will also reduce the expenditure on building and maintaining homes in today’s economy. Various governments across the globe should encourage such projects by subsidizing or funding the designers and developers, by coming up with various schemes and competitions on sustainable development, etc.

    I think it is high time we started taking nature and our planet earth seriously and do our bit about environment, sustainability, climate change, biodiversity, clean energy, green living and so on. One great place to start would be. Elpis is an online community focused on responsible living and sustainable growth. You can measure, reduce and offset your carbon footprint; set up petitions, volunteering and fundraising projects for your favorite causes; help create action plans for sustainable communities; buy a range of eco friendly products and services; and network with other people who share a common interest in a low carbon, responsible lifestyle.

  • WOW, this was a presentation done by Microsoft for prediction in technology in 2019… so half of this stuff will probably happen in the next ten years… by 2050… AI's will be around…

    Great idea, but what would the R-value of the walls be? There's no sense in over compensating to heat or cool when it could be energy efficient.

    Meh….glass floors for decks? Water filtration only occurs on plant wall side? Water reservoir seems undersized. Need to pump water back up to plants during time of no rain? Stair design very spatially inefficient. Interior areas unreasonable as proposed habitation space; may work for pavilion. One row of wind turbines is pointless at this size and scale. Seemingly overframed, though difficult to tell with simple massing diagrams shown.

    This house is so nice but so small

  • Steve says:

    I’ve designed multiple buildings like this, on my own, without any fancy degree.

    26 designers to craft this?

    They should get the fuck out of the way and let people with functional imaginations do something instead…

  • Mat says:

    What is innovative about this? I can make generalizations about a theoretical house in the year 2050 too.

  • Mat says:

    I especially like the “energy reservoir” in the fourth picture…

  • ashish thakur says:

    2050 …… there wd be so many more options …… i thought these were applicable as of yesterday ….as all proposed for me is ….. going back to 1985 ….. where i had put 90 percent of the proposal developed by 26 minds put together …. :) gimme something more to look forward to ….

  • jacqsilver says:

    These diagrams don’t offer the best understandings for the concept. For instance the bio-wall doesn’t seem to offer the proper spacing for the vent system or is it a UV Air Purifier biowall??

    Hello

    Where can I get more information on this project.

    Thank you

  • skulder says:

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.

    It’s always interesting to read through content from other writers and use something from other websites.

  • Latoya says:

    Admiring the time and effort you put into your website
    and in depth information you provide. It’s great to come across a
    blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed information. Fantastic
    read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Beautiful design. Best part is food growth stadium. It is great and very well thought.

    Beautiful small home is so many times batter than a big but dirty homes..

    very techie and future homes
