The Laboratory for Visionary Architecture [LAVA] has shared with us their proposal for the Home of the Future. Additional images and a project description are available after the break. LAVA’s Home of the Future is a showcase for future living, with nature, technology and man in a new harmony. The Home of the Future will start construction in late 2011 on the rooftop of a new furniture mall in Beijing, China. An ETFE geodesic skydome provides a year-round microclimate that opens up the home to a garden filled with sun, light and fresh air, away from the pollution and noise of the city. Visitors will experience fifteen different living spaces, from internal/external bathroom zones to kitchens flowing to veggie patches and bbqs to sunken bedrooms with dream inducing lighting. At night the home and the tropical garden turn into an otherworldly experience, with the underlying technology, the electronic veins of the system, coming to life.
