For most people, it will remain like that of most families in the world today - a one- or two-room hut made of timber or corrugated tin, uninsulated, built on an area prone to flooding or landslides, with no direct services, on the sprawling outskirts of a megacity.
a high end consumer electronic product, or a cardboard box, and nothing in between
It will be interesting to see what 2050 will be like in terms of architecture. I envision cities made out of high-rise and skyscrapers for living.
Igloo? since it will be again in the ice age.
Every day we have less time to spend at home. So i believe that is gonna continue evolving to more reduced spaces with focus on sleeping and social areas
Definitely in underground.
Similar to today.
My hope is that it will be more ecologically friendly and be an experience that will support the humans that inhabit it.
Depends on where you are.
In an urban environment: hopefully and probably, it will be more modular and efficient with multi-functional and co-operative spaces that promote a sense of community and sharing.
In a non-urban environment: hopefully, McMansions will no longer exist. Footprints and volumes will be smaller, spaces made more efficient and better planned. Ideally, buildings will be well constructed, well insulated, and be able to perform as a natural mechanism, by means of intentional design, independent of active technologies that rely on non-renewal fuel sources.
Ecological homes, self efficiency, with environment conscience
