UCLA’s Department of Architecture and Urban Design The Future Living Project, Daiwa House.March 2012

Lecture as part of a series for talks for UCLA’s Department of Architecture and Urban Design research initiative, The Future Living Project, supported by Daiwa House; Japan’s largest home builder, to investigate the relevance and changing notions of House and Home in an age increasingly overwhelmed by the imperatives of communication and mobility. As changes in lifestyle and technology redefine living conditions, the scale and scope of our living environment has expanded. The project aims to investigate and articulate this new expanded environment and consider new models and technologies for future living.
