Future Home:
circular economy

An element in architecture is to plan for the future by being prepared, which is commonly referred to as resilient architecture. Preparation for the future in the eyes of architecture is being ready for the event of a catastrophe and the real-life problems that come along with that. Those challenges could range from global warming and depleting resources to overpopulation and the demand for housing. Events like these demand for a change in lifestyle, where compact sense environments become the new normal. Solidarity through these times can help better prepare for these inev- itable changes. In response to these difficulties and to plan for a better future, housing should include adjustable space and shared common areas for community relationship strengthening.

A dwelling now becomes a self sustaining organism, where one can grow and produce their own food in the comfort of their own home. Moreover, the components being used to build new homes should come from repurposed materials which will minimize waste being sent to landfills. A future home that is; self-sufficient, resilient, and compact to provide solidarity.
