Atelier Toru Wada

St. Johann, Basel, Switzerland
Between the society and technology, the role of an architect/designer becomes blurry and his range of activity is wider than before. The development of communication tools allows us to be creative almost anywhere and anytime on anything. By controlling the network and the social media, we could propose a new way of working/collaborating. Atelier Toru Wada is not an office; it’s a platform looking for borderless interactions to connect people and to make new stories.

Housing Cells Evolution

Future's morphology of housing and real-estate
File under

The proposal “Housing Cells Evolution” is a narrative about the evolution of the living style and the real-estate in our near future where the exchange of information and the speed of transport are being bigger and faster. The relation of Time and Distance will be narrower and the housing typology will adapt to the new context. In the near future, the increase of the transport’s speed allows human-being to live in multiple locations and to be more nomadic. Adapting to the new situation, the real-estate company divides the housing format in 4 parts: bedroom, kitchen-dinning, living room, bathroom-toilet. Those ¼ units, called Housing Cells, are spreading with low cost on the market. In a new environment and new needs, the genes mutate into a new morphology to create hybrid mix of housing cells. An infinite combination of housing genes makes new world order in our future where the society becomes flat and chaotic by the acceleration of narrow Time-Distance relation.
