how will we live in the year 2020?
For decades science fiction-from The Jetsons to Blade Runner -- projected the intelligent building, the smart home, the responsive house. Today these visions are on the verge of reality. With technologies in play and more on the way-sensors, microprocessors, wireless networking, flat displays, now we ask: Can we design our built environment, blending physical and virtual worlds, to make life better?
The Home 2020 Studio X will propose a vision for digital life in the near future. We'll create a prototype to illustrate this vision. We'll operate as a design/build studio: our full-scale building will demonstrate the ideas we develop.
