How will we be living in 2100? ‘Living Pool’ proposes how people could be living together in the future, challenging existing norms of habitation and questioning about the role of housing and domestic space in the material reality of contemporary life. The proposal examines shared and collaborative ways of living as a possible solution to the current housing crisis. The visionary project is located in Bata Town, East Tilbury, an area voted as the first destination for Londoners who are in need for a more affordable place to live. It envisions a new lifestyle based on the concept ‘‘sharing can be a form of luxury rather than a compromise’’. In a time of flux, flexibility is therefore a keyword; Living Pool seeks to understand the notion of ownership and the limits of sharing within a flexible structure, that can be manipulated into the spaces of a so-called ‘home’, depending on the user’s specific requirements. Living Pool is re-imagining co-living.
