2025+ House: A Half-way-came-true Dream


Remember that the person dreaming about Periodic Table was no one else but Mendeleev, who dedicated his mind and numerous hours to work on such a significant project. Architects and designers might have dreams that can change the future of social infrastructure. We can predict what is good for human as well as the environment.
When I designed this project, all I cared were how my design should interact with human and the environment so that people can keep and improve health, and so does the earth. In that triangle relationship, none of those factors can be detached. Consequently, the project encourages a healthy life-style, dynamic and enjoyable yet not forget our duty to the nature. Among the contributions for future construction, technology is the key determinant. Engaging new materials and techniques open a completely new vision for design as a whole.
My apprehension has been proved now as sustainability has been increasingly a world-wide concern; new technology has daily updated with 3D, 4D and so forth. Therefore, I believe my dream can come true completely one day...
How should the house in the future look like?
Have you concerned how long you can stay away from your cell phone and not check your text messages, missed calls, or personal pages such as facebook or twitter? These days, we are likely to use technology in most of our daily activities, and hardly go against it, or just even think about going backwards as we are now driving cars instead of riding horses like in the past. Technologies have been contributing to human life in many aspects of life such as medical development, assistance equipment, construction, design, and entertainment. As we cannot deny technological achievement as its natural development, on the contrary, we should apply technology into design. This design for the house of 2025 or even further, is using new inventions or my dreams of energy production, 3D illustration, traffic solution, and new material application. My design expresses the concern of sustainability and human behavior to interior surroundings.
Site: Building is located moderately on natural landscape of the earth. The whole building will be raised from the ground so that it gives space for trees, springs, animals, and the ecological system surrounds it. This building preserves the nature respectfully as the way it should be.
Shape: The round shape of the house’s exterior constructed with light yet durable material. Each house is an independent unit which can be assembled into a certain building and connects to others by a central traffic corridor. Interior of the house reflected organic forms of furniture and elements
Color: As how consumers want it to be
Materials: light, eco-friendly yet durable, reduced and recycle
Energy and water: wind energy, solar energy, rainwater, consumed water reducing, trash composting
Rethinking: Ergonomics is still a standard for design measurement. However, designers always want to make things so accessible to their consumers that they use lack of effort to operate the setting. Gradually, it can cause laziness and some health related consequences. Therefore, we should think about using sporting elements or other applicable factors to interior design. In this design, there are rock climbing, bow sports, sliding, swimming, billiards, golf, paddling, and yoga
