Abstract

Global pandemics, smart technologies, demographics and climate change are just some of the external disruptors that may impact the home’s evolution over the next ten years. Future Home provides a comprehensive ‘horizon scan’ of what our homes may be like approximately ten years from now, by looking for early signs of potentially important developments through a systematic examination of trends, innovations and disruptors. The authors consider what aspects of the home are likely to remain constant and what aspects may change beyond all recognition and if changes are predicted, what form they may take and, most importantly, what this means for design professionals. Exploring areas of buildings and technology, people and delivery, each chapter addresses the catalysts, natures and responses to these changes. This book provides an overview of the future home that will be essential reading for designers, policy-makers and homeowners alike.
