The Nomadic House
The house is a living device with speculative technologies and ideas collected from science fiction films. It is a device that is nomadic,  adaptive, automated, self-sustainable and is able to share
like a Citi Bike.

The house aims to provide the future resident with a brand new mode of living by providing flexibility and mobility.  While technology had been evolving for millennial, residential housing technology has not undergone the kind of shift we have seen from other corners of the technological landscape.  The intersection of technology and housing living space has been very limited whereas, in science fiction, artist are free to rethink how technology could impact living space. 

House itself could transform in shape, attach with another housing unit to accommodate different family sizes, attach on different  surface and dock on a charging station to charge and shared. The interior of the housing is a collection of speculative technology from sci-fi movies. For example, the wall surfaces of  the interior wall are made out of the digital interactive surfaces; Kitchen and bathroom are all automated; Hover-board replaced stair and allow the user to freely utilize the vertical space.
