As architecture is turning into a standardized spatial production, where will we live?

As architecture is turning into a standardized spatial production, where will we live?
A creative take on non-human architectures becoming the propelling force of spatial production.

  • Systemic changes

Sitting in front of your computer, in your sleek apartment with marble surfaces and rose gold accents, are you really home alone? In a space that is as yours as it belongs to Instagram - don’t you love to post snaps of it, to get inspired on how to live - high-tech systems are breathing next to you. Your smart assistant listens to you at all times, while you laugh of joy for your new crush or cry for work-related stress. Sensors on the floor track your every movement, ready to gauge sickness and connect you with a doctor. Your fridge talks to your bin talks to your phone talks to the grocery shop. Your alarm talks to your door which scans your retina or calls the police. Your home is a digital conversation in which you’re only one of the participants, it’s a web flying out of your windows, becoming a network with the city and with data centers. In a standardized production of space, an architecture moving beyond the human, how will our unpredictable bodies and minds live?
