Program: Futuristic Society
As of 2007, more than half of the world's population is living in urban areas. Massive global urbanization has resulted in uncontrolled urban sprawls and erosion of natural landscapes. A tremendous amount of energy and time are wasted on commuting everyday. This project investigates the potential of mobile homes as an alternative future living system. Instead of constructing static infrastructures to contain single functions such as home, work, school, transportation, and entertainment, a mobile living unit is proposed to host it all. Although not confined to it, we live and work in these units. They become an integral part of us. People form communities not based on races nor nationalities, but common interests. Infrastructures are transient and dynamic. Invasive urbanization will undo its damages and give back to nature.
