The thesis proposes that the notion of agency may offer an alternative perspective from which non-human actors may participate in the design of human ecologies through the process of translation.

It is the static nature of the dwelling that has influenced how we perceive our concept of home. As the contemporary world continues to establish new connections, interweaving both physical and technical networks to challenge the ever-present barriers of mobility, the dwelling remains disassociated and dormant. The thesis proposes that the notion of agency may offer an alternative perspective from which non-human actors may participate in the design of human ecologies through the process of translation. It is translation defined as the mobilization of a common collective that the hybridization of the dwelling and mobility device may affect our conception and experience of home life.
