  • Dreamhome is a creative exploration of a prototype house designed with creative freedom using possible future technologies that may not be currently feasible. New and forthcoming technology in various scientific branches that could be applicable to architecture will be presented, and the applications discussed. Limitations of application to architecture of the reviewed technologies will be discussed. Prior works by architects and engineers who push boundaries to innovatively overcome technological limitations will be explored, as will examples in which advanced technology is applied to create unique architectural designs. Together these references will evoke inspirations to be translated into an architectural design and a virtual home. The house is desired to boast of a unique design with various aesthetic and functional features that are not usually seen in present day architecture. This visualization could be a glimpse of possible home design of the future.
